Must have been as hopefully that's all that should be in the tank! One tube appeared to be solid with crud, but the cable cleared it eventually. As I said, use the cable in an anticlockwise motion to break through the blockage, and then clockwise. When you do a clockwise rotation, the cable should start to unravel, and my way of thinking is that then the end of the cable will clean the inner surface of the tube. Once done, flush the bits out with clean fuel and discard. Worked for me really well.
