Default Dirt/Rocks in Gas Tank

I dont understan who puts rocks and dirt into a funnel but i was just filling up my cruiser with gas from a gas can and after i was done pouring around 5 gallons iinto the tank i dropped the funnel and rocks fell out. No i dont know if rocks got into my tank seeing as how they were stuck at the bottom of the funnel but some of the dirt that might have been on the rocks might have gotten into the tank. I only have to drive to college tomorrow and home on the weekend i can do something. How dangerous is haveing a little dirt and rocks in the gas tank? and What are some suggestions in fixing it? Note: It was dark out and i was tired because i have 640 classes so thats why i didnt notice them there.

:That's what the fuel filter is for. I wouldn't get gray hair over it. Some of have had worse then a little dirt a few rocks in our fuel tanks!
Just wait and see if you have any performance changes in the next few days or around 1/4 tank if fuel , or next 50 miles. If nothing changes your fine.
If something does one of us will give info how to drop and clean out your fuel tank,change the filter and flush the injection system out.
