Question about 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe
More than likely it is a vent or overflow hose. It probably connects to a fitting toward the top of the tank.

Yes, it could simply be an air-lock, but it could be that the fuel gauge is mis-reading too. The bottom of the tank may even be damaged, that is pushed up by a mis-hap of some sort. If filling the tank slowly doesn't solve the problem, I think I would dip the tank using a fexible tube. At least that wiould tell you if the tank is 1/4 full or not.

Testimonial: "Thanks. That seems like the best place to start."
The connectors tend to get dirt and debris in where the special tool slides in which prevents the little tabs from disengaging from the raised ring on the plastic pipe. Pull the line towards the pump as if you were trying to push it on even further and use compressed air to blow out any crud where the tool goes. Then insert the tool and push it in firmly while pulling the line toward the tool a bit to relieve the pressure on the little internal metal retaining clips and at that point with a little wiggling the line should come off. I've taken off dozens and they can be exasperating to say the least. IF all else fails and you are certain that you are going to replace the pump module and absolutely can not get the lines disconnected for the stubby plastic fittings on top of the old one then you could simply break off the plastic fittings on the old pump so you can work on getting the fittings disconnected once you have the tank out. I've had to do this a couple of times but it means that the old pump module can't be used again since the fittings would be broken off of it. Be extremely careful working around the tank as it will be full of gasoline fumes and extremely flammable!
