Hey guys probably a rookie mistake on my part

 

But while changing the fuel pump on my V11 Sti some sand that was around the fuel pump area fell into the fuel tank and I can now see it settled at the bottom of the tank

 

It's not a lot maybe 2 pinches of salt amount 

 

Should I be worried about it? I have put in a new filter at the same time and car runs fine

I've got no experiance but i;d go with "she'll be rite mate'

 

if it ever picks up I bet the sock will do its job, then when you turn off, drops it etc

 

if you're really worried I'd check the fuel filter in the engine bay in a couple months maybe

Ah yeah Mine don't have one of them that I can see - @Andy_Mac do you know if the V11 Sti's have a fuel filter in the engine bay anywhere?

Nah GR/GV’s and BL/BP Legacy’s use the same cradle which has the pre pump screen on the bottom of the pump and then a cardboard filter which is part of the top half of the fuel pump cradle.
