Without that pipe, you'll get a whiff of petrol in the car. It should feed down into a hole in the floor of the boot with a grommet around the hole.

That breather pipe is normally hard plastic but you can use a petrol compatible rubber hose if you have to.

Let the hose protrude as far as the bottom of the subframe, it needs passing air to draw the fumes away.
