Fuel tank inspection port gasket

Thomas Kleman

My forward inspection port (the one with the fuel level gauge) is leaking. I decided to change both gaskets but "practice" with the rear most port as it's easier. I was surprised to find that it isn't a gasket at all but a 2/3 eaten rubber disk. I've never had a clog (yet) and there are several baffles between where pieces would fall in the tank and the outlet. A previous owners repair ? Some Amel design feature I don't understand ? Next time I get low on fuel I'm definitely having a good look.
