    Hey guys sorry this might sound dumb and weird, but I got a new locking gas cap this last weekend and took out the old (stock gas cap out). Well the stock gas cap has that skinny black plastic string connected to the cap and connects to the door. Well I cut the plastic string off and a piece of black plastic like a quarter inch long and half quarter inch wide fell down my gas tube where u fuel ur truck up at the gas station... I mean should I worry I need suggestions please. I don’t think it will do anything.

    Just joking. I have no idea, but since it’s plastic, I don’t think it would harm anything :notsure:

    Paging more knowledgeable tundra owners ...

    I think my tank has a hole in it because as soon as I fill it up it’s already gone :oops:

    I'm no expert but if the piece was that little it won't do any harm. Remember that even if it makes it all the way to the tank there's a fuel filter on the fuel pump. If it gets sucked onto the filter it won't restrict flow that bad and once you turn your truck off it will release the suction and fall back into the tank. More so, the chances of it being in the right place at the right time to get sucked onto the filter is highly unlikely. Hence that piece of plastic will just float around your gas tank til the end of its day...

    Don't worry about it, a piece of plastic that small won't hurt anything.;)

    No such thing as a dumb question when it concerns your Tundra's well being. :thumbsup:

    Ya that’s true. I plan on keeping this truck for a while and doing some mods. And for that being said I won’t worry I just hope it doesn’t get sucked into anywhere ☹️
