That's the roll-over valve and charcoal canister - a.k.a. Evap Crap.

Recently found one of mine like that. Easy repair and this was just the topic of the latest Robot video.

Evap Canister
I just removed mine in my bv350. Easy to do.
Small inline filter in the tank vent line and just block off the hose coming from the engine

Probalby want to see to that, either repair it it or block it off. Most such usually run to the intake manifold, and create a vacuum leak if left open, as well as a source of unfiltered air to the engine.
