What is white plastic tank under the air filter for?

Asked by Apr 10, 2015 at 12:44 PM about the 2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i

Question type: General

Just noticed that underneath the air filter in my 2015 Forester, there is a large white plastic tank, similar in appearance to the windshield and coolant tanks.  What is it exactly?  I can't find any mention of it in the owner's manual.  Just curious.

I think that's just to catch any fluid that happens to get into the air filter. That's a different way of doing it, but if it ain't broke don't fix it.
