Question fuel tank vent

This looks to me like it would be a vent system for the fuel tank but does anyone know why there are 2 and tied together? the "T" on the LT vent has a cap on it so I am wondering what it is doing? Do I need to replace this line like it is or do something different? I am getting ready to put the tank back in so I would like to know. Thanks!

I say if it is not too expensive, replace it. Hopefully replacing it now will keep you from having to drop it again.

I meant replace it with a factory part. If it came from the factory that way I am guessing it has some purpose.

I have yet to drop my tank so I can't say for certain mine is the same. Might be some sort of air purging set up. What fitting is on the "T"?

If fuel is not running through it you could probably leave it as is. It just looked a little rusty from the pic.

I would make my own new vent line that would never have to be replaced, but as you can see in this pic the cap on this "T" does not look like it would let any pressure out. the cap fits on a single barb stem....It just does not look right to me. what do you think??

If you can make your own I say go for it.

As far as "looking right" I'm not sure but I still think it must serve some purpose.

Maybe someone else can chime in...

I do not see how any pressure could get out of that cap?
