View Full Version : Small gas cap screw fell in tank!

The other day I went to fill up my boat and took the gas cap off...it fell onto the ground! The screw that holds the chain was gone. It appears it went down into the gas tank. I would imagine it's o.k. sitting in the tank. I couldn't imagine it would get sucked up through the gas line, filters, etc. Any thoughts on any concerns I should have? Thanks!

I'm curious as to the answer of this dilemma myself........

I could not imagine that it could cause any problems. Even if it were to get picked up it seems that it could not get past the fuel filter. That is what it is there for.

Most pick ups have a screen in the tank even older boats At least the ones I have seen
