My kit came with one, which was discarded when I fitted a powervamp. Now back with a banner so have shoved a bit of tubing in and with replace with the official banner part!.

If no signs of corrosion anywhere the probably fine without it.

A friend had his Banner overcharge and boil the electrolyte .... it was a real mess without the vent pipe. It only takes one instance ... acid everywhere.

Re #33:

Now that is a very good point, Ian.  Maybe I should think again....

Well, following Ian's comment I did think again. 

I bought this cheapo vent hose from Alpha Batteries.  The elbow was slightly too big, so I had to ream out the battery vent hole to 6.5mm.  My battery is in the "old" location directly behind the ECU, so I needed to extend the hose to 730mm (from 500mm) to reach down below the chassis.
