It sounds like it was only half installed.
A short pipe leaves the fuel filler recess, connects to a plastic elbow, then a long pipe goes down to floor level and dangles outside just behind the line of the rear of the passenger seat.

I lay under the car with an air line and blasted the crud out the way it came in. The plastic elbow has a smaller diameter than the pipe, so it seemed more logical to do it this way.

Thanks. Yes darn it. Seems like its missing a bit. There is no way I can reach up to be able to clear it from below...I can see it just cant touch it. Perhaps if I remove all the plastic stuff I can get it it from above.

Just get an airline (or bicycle pump and football adapter) and blow from above ie inside the petrol tank flap. With luck it will blow it through the 90° connector. I clear both of mine every year and it works for me
