The blonde did it again....
Went to put fuel additive. took the cap off then went to take the seal metal/plastic piece off the top of the bottle. Of course, it went into the bottle rather than peeling off. I thought I could go slow and keep it in the bottle but nooo it went into the tank. It is about the size of a quarter. How long do i have to get it out of there or will the car/fuel pump be fine?

I can't be the only one this has happened to.

The only way to get it out of there is to remove the back seat and then pull the pump assembly out and hunt for it in the bottom of the tank and hope its on the side that has the pump. Worse case it will suck up against the pickup screen which could slow fuel flow under full throttle a bit. Its not going to kill the pump or anything though.
