2007 Odyssey EX-L. A squirrel chewed the shortest black

Customer Question

2007 Odyssey EX-L. A squirrel chewed the shortest black vapor hoses. CEL is on. The hose looks like vacuum hose except it is smaller. The hose runs from the top of the fuel tank to the side rail. The rail side is a quick-connect. The chewed opening on the hose is a few inches from the quick-connect. The other end of the hose goes into the fuel tank. Is there a way to fix or replace it without removing the tank?

I am assuming the hose is chewed thru or chewed in half
IF you can get to the hose & make a clean cut (in half) on both sides, then you can take a piece of the hose to Parts Store & get a piece of tubing (metal or plastic) that will fit inside the hose, splicing it together, then have the Trouble Code/s cleared
IF you cannot get to it, then Tank removal will be needed
