Game of “what’s this”

Open end of a metal tube in driver side engine compartment. Metal tube runs along frame near brake lines. Connects to rubber hose. Goes to passenger side of fuel tank. Goes up then back down and then into my tank. I don’t think it’s a breather because I have one of those on the other side of the rank with a check valve in it. Here are some pictures.

Vacuum hose patched long ago terminating to thin air.

Best guess is someone took the Charcoal Canister off and never went back.

I still have my charcoal canister intact. Passenger side under the battery. I’ve never noticed this before. I’m pretty observant of things in my engine. So I’m assuming I accidentally knocked something off?

Are all the hoses and lines plugged into your charcoal canister?

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

Fuel return line for anti-vapor-lock system that someone removed? Is your carb stock or have blocked-off ports?

Oh right, four cylinder. I thought you had the 4.2 for some reason. I still think it's a fuel return line.

The line that curves up at the front left frame rail should have a hose that goes to the charcoal canister. The other end of that line should terminate right next to where your steel fuel lines terminate. The line in question goes then to the vent or vacuum line that is teed into both valves on the top of the tank.

Here is a couple of pics at the rear. The line hanging down in front of the tank would hook to the only rusty steel line in the other pic. Hope this helps.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

I found a line coming off of the charcoal canister that lead to the “area” of the hard line not connected. However it didn’t reach. What a PITA to fix. The diameter of the hard line is smaller that the opening on the charcoal canister. AND there was a plastic fitting inside the hose at the canister end. I muscles the fitting into the new hose and with a little might and some lube was able to get the new hose back onto the canister.

Thanks for the help guys.
