Re: Fuel Tank Pressure and Venting

That's called vapor pressure. Allmost all liquids that evaporate will exhibit vapor pressure.
Yes it will help push gas out of the tank but it's not great enough that a properly operating
float valve can't over come it.
 There are two valves in the gas cap that allow for excess pressure to relieve itself. In your
state the gas vapors are captured by the emission system. A lot of us have gas tank that
sing to us. The song is "That was a fine ride"
