Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
On the actual tank, no. But on most models there is what they call an antisiphon valve. If you look at where the fuel line connects to the tank. On those nipples sometimes there is a check valve inside of them. And they do clog up.
Did you have any other questions about this or was your primary concern about a possible screen in the tank? -Jason

I think part of your question got cut off. I don't see anything about sputter. All I see is, and I will quote what I see "
