[DML] FUEL VENT TUBE



My question concerns the fuel vent tube (#106683) that
is installed in the fuel tank.  I understand why you
need a vent system on the fuel tank, what I am
wondering about is why there is 24 inch long, 3/16
inch diameter (copper?) solid wire attached to the
plug that fits into the vent hole of the tank??

When properly inserted into the tank, this wire is
routed to the aft center of the fuel tank and is free
to rotate approximately 20 degrees left and right. 
The wire is permanently swedged or soldered to the
vent plug, so it cannot be removed from the plug
itself.

What purpose does this wire perform?  The manual has
nothing about it, that I have been able to find.
