How does a petrol tank from a car work?

The petrol tank on any vehicle does not actually do any work at all, it's only function is to store the petrol that your vehicles engine runs on, the part that does the work is the petrol ( or fuel pump as it's also called) pump that is located in many different locations depending on make and model (on most motorcycles there is not even a fuel pump, petrol is simply gravity fed to the engine) on some it's in the petrol tank, and runs on electricity, on others it's in the petrol line somewhere between the tank and the engine (on most cars it's on the side of the block and runs off an extra lobe on the camshaft or a gear run off the crankshaft) The pumps job is of course to pump the petrol from the holding tank to the engine at a pressure that the engine needs it fed to it.

What happens if you drop a plastic bottle in fuel tank by accident?

This is firstly not possible, but if in any case this happens nothing special will happen.

You need to take your car to a mechanic or you have to replace the total fuel systeem of the car. Also remember you wont get an original part again with inyour budget.
