Hello there, this is my first post.
I hope am not in the wrong section for technical issues like this.

I'm not sure what the part of my 106, that I have issues with, is called.
The technician described it to me as fuel tank valve for exhalation.
After searching the internet a bit, I think it's called tank breather.
I have no idea if it's the same. I had really trouble finding info about it.

So, here's what happened.
Some days ago, after topping up my 106, it started leaking gasoline from the back-bottom of the car. The leakage was near the fuel tank.
I drove to my technician to find out what it was and it turned out that it wasn't the tank itself, but rather the valve close to it.
We tried to find a replacement for it, but it isn't sold separately. So if I wanted to be fixed I needed to buy a new fuel tank as well.
The technician insisted that it isn't worth cause it's too expensive and that it will be "ok" if we just bypass the valve and reroute the fumes to the engine directly.

Now, when it comes to cars I'm still pretty newbie, but I don't think removing something from a car couldn't come with absolutely no effect to it.
Technician insists that there won't be any major issues now that he removed it, the car will be a bit less environmental friendly.
He doesn't really convince me though, and that's why I am here.

Is there any risk that I am taking by driving this car without this valve?
