Hi all, first post and new lotus owner, during my oil change on an 07 US Elise I noticed this very interesting looking hose that just... ends? Was wondering if anyone knew what it could be, what it should connect to, and if I should be worried. I've driven about 1000 miles since I bought it in the late summer and no issues but this struck me as extremely odd.

The picture below shows where this hose goes if that helps anyone figure out what it could be.

As "not-a number" said, it's the drain hose from the fuel FILLER. Open your fuel flap and you will see a drain hole under the cap, that feeds into that hose.

Oh wow read that very wrong oops haha, ok yes I see the little hose at the bottom, it looks smaller than this relocated one but that is most likely the case, thanks for the piece of mind, both of you!
