OK tonight I followed my sophisticated gas detection device (nose) to the source.

I pulled the interior trim pieces off around the fuel neck/ wheel well area to find a puddle of gasoline where the fender meets the hatch area. The extra hose that I think catches the little drips from filling up and drops them into the evap. emissions canister was also disconnected.

I put the hose back into it's receiving part, but here's my question. The rubber tube is loose in the female part. Is there a clamp or something that is missing? Seems a little odd to me that something for gas would just be open to the atmosphere like that, but maybe it prevents a vacuum from forming or something?

I have some photos I can try to post if anyone is interested, but I've been told I smell like gas and that I need a shower.
