Trying to Switch fuel fill up line from 95 to 98 but the are different
The 98 has several smaller fuel lines coming off it that go to a box sitting under the LR of the chassis to the rear of the tire. The fuel tank appears to have extra hoses coming out of it also. My other 2 cars a 95 and 96 do not have this. What is it and can I eliminate it? Or will I just have to find a similar one off another 98?

Are you talking about the carbon canister or do you have a picture? If so, I have removed the carbon canister with no ill effects but some say its not a good idea.

Yeah I looked that up it must be what it is. I was replacing it because the tube you put the fuel in has rusted and you cannot add fuel to the car without it spraying on the ground while you a fueling it. After inspcecting it and finding the holes right at the bend behind the tire, I am going to try cutting it and replacing it with some hose in that section. The 2 smaller lines coming off the big one also were rusted through, car was on the coast when I bought it. I'll try and post some pics tomorrow when I tear into it again. If I end up removing the cannister, do I just block all the extra lines? and What kind of ill-effects can you expect? We don't have to pass inspection around here.

98/99 have extra emissions crap than the 95-97 including the EVAP charcoal canister you are describing near the fuel tank. It's there so hydrocarbons (fuel vapors) is not released into the atmosphere.

sounds like some weight reduction is in order here.
