    Was this a paper wasp, dirt dauber or what? Can you still see the nest? – JPhi1618 Apr 5 '18 at 20:15

    Filler pipe removal difficulty varies with make, model and year of vehicle, no way to answer this question until you post the make, model and year of vehicle. – Moab Apr 5 '18 at 20:58
  • With the danger of bits going further, you should also consider having the tank cleaned before you run the car again - don't run the engine as the fuel system could ingest stuff that could cause a lot of damage. – Solar Mike Apr 6 '18 at 7:57
  • Paper wasp, no you can't see it. – Denise Crumpton Apr 6 '18 at 19:39
