What is mounted to the underside of the trunk

I have a 2000 Mercury Sable LS and I am not sure what the part is mounted to the under side of the trunk. It has fuel lines running to it from the tank and from the port you fill your tank from. Any help would be appreciated.

That's your vapor canister. It's part of your evaporative emission control system.

From the Haynes Repair Manual: "The evaporative emission control system traps and holds fuel vapors that would otherwise escape to the atmosphere during normal operation" (unless it's not working, of course).
