Shelby427 Umm if the pump was sucking with no type of vent or positive pressure allowed, it would suck the tank till it collapsed.

Your fuel tank is pressurized as part of the emissions system. That's why if you don't have the cap tight it can set a code in the ECM for an fuel evap system problem.


Either that, or with today's gas prices and jeep's gas mileage, the sucking sound is dollars being sucked out of your wallet.

It's normal to hear air rushing past, it will be blowing, not sucking. This is the gas vapour in the tank escaping which becomes pressurised in the gas tank. This is normal.
