Nobody Knows? I poached this post from page 2

I Have the same thing under my hood, and was wondering the same .....

The pic did not copy from the origional but it is currently on the top of page two in the gen discussion section.

In the pic below, I've got two hoses coming out of the firewall side-by-side. The top one's the fuel line. Is the other one the fuel tank vent hose that used to go into a charcoal cannister? If so, shouldn't it be UN-plugged, not plugged with a bolt as it is now?

on my car the "vent hose" runs from the tank filler hose to a plastic bottle tucked over the right-side fender well in the trunk.

I would guess that your 'second hose' under the hood isn't that line.

Just guessing---but it could be a return line for injection setup.

if you're running a carb, then that line isn't needed.

you could plug it at the tank (most do) or leave it plugged under the hood as it is....but it should be plugged. Don't want stray fumes.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
