What goes in this hole in the fuel tank?



I wondered why I always smelled gas.

Anyway, so there's this hole in the fuel tank that looks like a plug has fallen out. Any way to find one of those separately? What is that part's name? It looks like it's the same size as that vacuum fitting on the other side of the tank.

From what I remember there's supposed to be a fitting just like the one of the right side of the tank.

Edit: found a picture.

they are commonly called roll over valves. I had to replace both about 2 yrs ago. Orielly had them like 10 bucks each.

Natch. I eventually figured it out, too--I really am missing one from my TJ--but as it turned out the other vent was just dangling from the disconnected vac line underneath the body. Thanks!
