What's this for?

I pulled the false tank last night to replace a hose and found this tube. No idea what it's for... anyone? I don't know what it should be connected to.

That looks like a hose for letting stuff out...not for keeping stuff in. In other words a drain hose. Maybe for the gas drain tray around the gas tank fill? Trace it back see where it goes.

It looks like the battery vent hose. I have an AGM battery and I don't use mine since the battery doesn't have a place for it. If you have an AGM battery you don't need it.
