I was looking for a leak near the filling hole of the gas tank, so I removed the plastic thingy in the rear right(passenger side) fender well and to my suprise I found a empty white plastic container with a majority of rusted unplugged tip hoses(some were plugged) going in a tube over the one for the gas tank.

So I'm wondering what it is supposed to do and what the **** it is... its actually not functional and hoses are pretty dilapidated :confused: :confused: :confused:

anyone knows?

Seems to be the container of the fuel tank ventilation.

Could you explain a bit further please, like what it does more precisely.
I'm worried about the rusted hoses... does it matter if they are unconnected? Out of 4 or 5 there is like only 1 that is connected.

thanks

I believe it is an expantion tank for the fuel system, or vapours of the fuel to be more precise

I can't see where they're supposed to connect and the tips are rusted like sh*t...
