Should there be a hose here? (re: turbo)

Went to replace the o-rings on the fuel drain valve this evening (starting leaking this week), but noticed for the first time (I've only had the truck for a couple months) what appears to be a missing hose, and a fair amount of carbon buildup on a direct path where the hose ought to be. Here's a photo. Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.

Thanks. I think I have a length of 1/4" around here somewhere.

Since I have no idea how long this hose has been missing, should I be looking for any damage or ill effects of its absence?

I drive at 10,000 ft or more most of the time... it must be the altitude ;-)

Actually, I just try to be disciplined with the right foot. Hard to do, but worth it for the fuel savings.
