Its supposed to vent pressure out of your tank, I had a stopped up gas cap on my 96. I tried to soak it in seafome but it did not work,so I took the gas cap off of my 84 parts bike and used it. I just left the hose off as the 84 did not have the tube on it,works fine. Hal

I use it to hold the gas flap open while I reach over for the fuel pump nozzle. :)
