White hose from Gas can fell in gas tank

SO I had just got done plowing my landlord's property and was preparing to top off the gas tank when the white plastic hose that fits on the gas can fell into the gas tank of my Rinny. I cannot see it and I tried to use some tongs to see if I could feel it but with no success. Does this pose a threat to getting lodged somewhere?

I doubt if that would be a problem. It would have to be something small enough to get down inside the hose leading to the sub-tank/fuel pump housing. Not sure what type of hose is on your can, but I doubt there's any way it would block the hose.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

the hose is about 8-10 inches long flexible and the diameter is about the size of a quarter.

No, I don't think there's any way that would hurt anything. It will probably just slosh around in the tank. The only problem that I could think of, would be if it stays in the tank for a very long time and the gas tries to dissolve the plastic or something like that. I don't know how long that would take or even if it would dissolve it. Since it was on a gas can, I'm guessing it's impervious to gas, anyway.

Next time you have the tank off for a valve adjustment I'd fish it out then, until then I wouldn't worry about it.

Also if your quad is a few years old, the next time you have the tank off, swish it around and pour the all the gas into a clear container. If you see crap in the bottom continue swishing with some of the clean gas until no more sediment comes out. I was surprised how many bugs, sand grains etc. was in mine. The fuel strainer at the base of the tank can also be removed and cleaned.
