No. Fuel accumulates in it and part of regular maintenance is to wash\blow it out. I don’t know where your pump is located, but check the line for cleanliness. This is the one that goes from the nipple on the side of the reed cage to the port on the pump. This sends the pulse to the diaphram in the pump to pull\push fuel. Check for a nice short routing of the line and usually you want the pump higher so fuel can drain back. Keeping it clean will make fuel delivery more efficient. Also make sure there is no kinks in it and that you are using a fairly thick walled type of tubing. Some people use the one with the braid in it, or Motion-Pro which has a super thick wall to prevent kinking.
