Default Can anyone tell me what this is?

I got up under the bed of my truck, and noticed that there was a disconnected hose coming from the top of the gas tank to some black cylinder, winch looking thing.. I reconnected it, but I wanted to know what it was. I would put up pics, but it's dark outside.

Thanks,
Mike P.

Alright, cool. Could I have done any damage by having it disconnected for a long period of time? Most likely disconnected for a number of months.

Dude, on my Evo IX i took mine off so I could save 11.4 lbs forever ago. It's an environmentally friendly part.

Did you also cap off the tank port? Cause mine was sitting with an open hose
