I have a collapsed tube coming out of the right side of my fuel tank just infront of where the filler neck is and goes around the front of the tank and is not the tube that connects to the pump or filter and I have trouble starting my car but once it is started it runs great just wondering if this could be the problem because it is deffinatly a fuel delivery problem and I just replaced the whole fuel pump assembly. Also It acts up the worst right after I put gas in it Ive been stranded at the gas station for a half hour at times. And usualy I just spray a little carb cleaner in the intake to help it start but after i just put gas in it it will just barley spudder to life and then die. It does not throw any codes and Ive tried spaying all the vaccum lines incase of a leak and didnt find 1. And it cranks really strong and like i said it runs fine after I get the engine to fire and when it doesnt the carb cleaner starts it up first try so im pretty sure that the plugs and injectors and all that would give it problems after it starts if any of those were bad. And I dont have money to keep buying the wrong stuff and cant find out what it is and just noticed the collapsed hose today so im hopeing that is it.

I just looked under my '03 and If I'm right, your refering to one of the vent hoses that let the tank vent when you open the gas tank door. If you notice on yours, when you open the door and there is one on the top and one on the bottom. They both ran to the front of my gas tank to a junction (for lack of a better term) near the fuel filter. They probably could cause trouble if they do collapse. Have you changed the filter? I would disconnect the collapsed hose and examine it to see if it opens back up. If not replace it. I'm no expert, but I'm sure they are just for venting. Wear some safety glasses just in case.
