Gas Tank Vapor Leak

Whenever i turn on my jeep there is a hissing from my gas tank..but no gas leaks whatsoever.. I assume its a hole in the top of the gas tank that is allowing air to escape....Is this dangerous? Anyone ever have this happen before?

that is wierd... Take your gas cap off and see if it still does it. Caps are supposed to breath, it may not be???

Just something to look at anyways, I've never heard that yet.
