Fuel fill hose

Hello all...I had a dumb thing happen to me. As I was adding fuel to the tank (through the deck fill) the plastic fill tube/spout popped off and dissapeared down the fuel fill hose! I can't think of any other way to get it out other than to remove the fill hose ( a very large project!) Does anyone know if the palstic spout sitting in the hose will cause any problems? I don't think it would have made it all the way to the fuel tank because the fill hose makes a curve before it get's to the tank and the spout is about 7" long and won't be able to make the turn. I'm thinking about leaving it there....anyone's thoughts? Thanks!
