That is the rollover valve.
Cars have had them for years now.

Many are built into the fill neck at the tank, and not in the tube , as it is harder for anyone to defeat that way.

- It provides a method of controlled escape for gasoline vapors during the refueling process. It has a mechanism which closes the vent in the event the vehicle rolls over, to prevent spilling of VOCs or fuel in general. It also acts as a fill limiter.
