Strange Oval ring around filler neck?

Hi, I have a question regarding a recently purchased 06 Impala with the 9C3 police package. While filling up today I noticed a plastic ring siliiconed around the filler neck. It has two wires that attach to it. Anyone have any ideas what this could be? Thx

I can't imagine what the ring is but if the wires connect to a cell phone I would contact EOD. (not being helpful)

I'm thinking it might be some sort of static-reducer or something? Can you post a picture?
