Assuming plug is still in there and socket went over top? This is patience and ingenuity. Try needlenose pliers, a small claw tool, 2 screwdrivers with tape on ends and try to wedge socket between them, 1 screwdriver to move and wiggle and a magnet, shop vac and a hose that fits down there, extension with sticky tape on end, small wire or wires with a hook at the end....

A piece of string and some well chewed gum...

There's gotta be a hundred ways to recover it using a little ingenuity!

I like that one, Dez...

Another: Remove the gas tank and use a telescoping magnet.
