That tube is an fuel emissions vent tube. Usually is routed towards the ground.

Yes it is but that part is routed correctly. There is a Y connector close to that end of the hose. The other end of the Y (not the one to the charcoal canister) goes to the ground. I think its in case the one at the ground gets clogged.

The right side picture (2nd) is your lap timer connector or can be used for low power switched accessories.
