Default Overflow tank question

Should there be two hoses hooked up to the tank or just one on my 03 Turbo? I'm looking for a leak in the bottle and when I pulled it out there was just one hose hooked up to it, but it kind of looks like there should be two, at least that's where I think the coolant is getting out from.

Both the Haynes and Chilton manuals show only one hose for the turbo charged models. The non-turbo models show two.

No, it didn't come with one and there has been a case (especially with the turbo's) that the heat caused damage to the plastic tank. If you see any signs of heat affecting the tank, you can make something up just to reflect the direct heat attack.
