99 seirra has hanging ground wire
 
Hello, I have a 99 seirra 1500 pickup and I noticed a flat copper ground wire hanging from the frame next to the gas tank/ fuel pump area! Does it ground the electronics that work the fuel pump!:(

It is to ground the fuel filler neck for static shocks

Pretty unlikely to happen but you never know
