It allows air to escape the top of the "bulge" at the pointy end of the tank.

 Better picture here, but I don't recall seeing it when I last cleaned my tank.

I'm a bit confused since the DMC site says "vent tube" yet it's not the vent hose, and it's not called a ground rod either. So what is it, guys? How does it vent anything?

Zikes, I went over this page again and again and I just didn't see it. I
spoke to Cameron at DMC and he suggested a thorough cleaning would
probably be all that is necessary, which given David T suggested the same
thing, is what I'll give a try. I'm going to finish cleaning out the tank
and then get a better look at the grounding rod/vent tube to see if it is
damaged enough to require replacement.
