    What is this... I found in my fuel tank??

    I'm putting back together my rebuilt SL 780. I needed to drain out the fuel tank. When I pulled the cap, I noticed this little string attached to the gas cap teather, so I pulled on it. And out poped this long, mesh tube-like thing with a grey looking pouch material inside it. It doesn't look homemade so I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what it is and what it was for?

    It's not factory. I'm guessing a device to help absorb moisture in the fuel?

    Got me.

    It's to absorb water. About 12-15yrs ago we tried them in snowmobiles and had problems with some of them.
    The stuff inside the bag inside of it was leaking out and plugging jets.

    Is that one of the Fitch fuel catalysts?

    Thanks for the ID... and the laughs.

    Looks like I'll be leaving this bugger out of the tank.

    Cheers!

    Turns out that's another rare OEM part! This just popped up on ebay:
