    Default Tar like stuff in fuel filter housing?

    Hi all.

    Got the car going finally after cleaning off the filter housing and putting a new filter in it. At the bottom of the filter housing and up about a third of the filter was this horrible thick gunky black stuff rather like tar but not as sticky. Any idea what it could be? Not sure where it could have come from.
