It's an open vent, so yep... If you're going to stand it up, make sure your tank is low or that you pinch that hose shut with something.

This is why the stock gas cap hose goes up to the steering stem. It keeps the opening up above the gas tank, so you get no syphon effect.

it should have come with the cap. it is a small check valve that goes on the end of the hose.
