More likely to be Sicoflex and Silicon Sealer if the last boat I looked at is anything to go by!

The old grey cell have started working

I had a problem many years ago with a fuel blockage on a mini. I connected an air line to the carb end of the line and blew the blockage out. I stayed clear long enough to run the tank down to a level where I could clear the crud.
Warning - Increase the pressure slowly, make sure the filler cap is off. If the tank is anywhere full it will blow fuel out of the filler when the blockage lets go.

Probably a last resort option

Can I suggest that after you've blown out the obstruction you either use a sifon or a pump of some sorts and using a tube through the filler, run all over the bottom of the tank to remove the crap. Might save you getting too dirty and smelly.
