I'd like to know myself. I do know it's got something to do with the fuel tank breather.

It's an environment thing.
It collects the gasoline fumes/vapors when the engine is stopped, and converts them back to fuel in the charcoal, thus preventing them from polluting the air.

On a non emissions compliant car it doesn't matter I just relocated mine to the fender well so I could feel good that I've done my part.
The problem is what to do with all the vacume lines afterwards.
