Found some stuff in my tank, What it be?
I finally got around to fishing a fuel spout out of my tank. It popped off the can last time I used it. Had to take the air cleaner off to get a grabber in there

Found this stuff down there too:



The wire is obviously a retainer for the fuel cap. Not sure what the other stuff is. Maybe a float for the fuel level sender?

Second question: There's a lock on my fuel cap but neither the door key or the ignition key will turn it. I've had motorcycles that use a universal lock on the gas tank so any ignition key will fit it. Is this the same way? There aren't any numbers next to the hole to tell me a key code

The spring is from a fuel cap chain

If you take notice to the copper sleeve (or what I'm assuming is copper or brass) the side facing us in the picture is worn down from the sleeve being faced down in the tank. It's been rubbing back and forth while sloshing around the tank. Think about where all those fine little sanded pieces of copper went....

Anyone doubting why having good smaller filtration filters is essential? You never know what's gonna get introduced to your fuel system.
