Help ID this cracked fuel filler hose

As I was filling the gas tank up this evening, I noticed a small leak coming from one of the many connectors and hoses near the filler neck. The picture shows the small crack in the line - it was only dripping when I was filling the tank.

Can someone help me identify this fuel line? One end of that line disappears into (what appears) to be the top of the fuel tank.

Yes. This is a vent hose connecting between the filler neck and the top of the tank.

Agreed. As a quick fix (that could last forever) grab some vulcanized rubber tape, start wrapping the pipe below the beginning of the crack, and work your way up to the worm gear hose clamp. Then loosen the clamp and keep taping all the way up to the end of the pipe. Then re-clamp everything over the tape. A year or two from now, try to remember that the pipe still needs to be replaced! ;-)

Thanks, Omar & David.

I hadn't thought of using the vulcanize rubber tape - awesome suggestion!
That difficult job just got a lot easier! Thanks!
