The baffles and height differences in the pump pick up work like a septic tank forcing all the solids to stay in the tank and not float into the pump cavity inlet.
so at some point do you need to clean it out or is it okay to sit down there. I mean this was smaller than a penny worth of paper towel.

Were you using a sponge or a napkin/paper towel?
The reason i`m asking is because cellulose was mentioned.

Okay.
Well, I still say that it`ll dissolve because it`s a different kind of paper than the paper in a fuel filter but, to ease you concerns, go back to that gas station and get one of those paper towels and take it home. Tear off a piece that was the size that went into your tank and put it in a container of water for a couple of days and shake it up every now and then to simulate driving. I`m sure it`ll be quite difficult to remove it from the container totally intact.

Gas station paper towels are the worst! If I were in your shoes, I'd get somebody to steal the truck and crash it into a thick wall, preferably at 45 mph or more, ensuring frame damage. There's also a good chance the person stealing the truck would become decapitated, making it easier for me to pour gasoline and set everything on fire. No witness and the insurance company will never find out.

But, that's just me.

No need as long as this happens before the recall for the pretensioner is performed. It's a perfectly well constructed way to get rid of this pesky paper towel!

Not quite so awesome that at least one person didn't get it.

BTW, I'm with Tedster, new truck is the only option.
