I thought it was the gas cap vibrating on the side but its not. Anyone know what this noise is? I also noticed I dont have the little flap that covers the gas tank hole, so any debris can just go right into the tank if the gas cap isnt on.......

Is the car on or off when it makes this sound? Does it ever stop? I've never seen or heard anything like this.

You can only hear it if its running and only when the gas cap is off???

I'll check.....

No, it doesnt matter if the gas tank is full or empty, the sound is exactly the same. I just bought it last Friday...the first time I filled it up I was thinking, damn thats a nice stock cam lope banging the gas cap against the quarter panel. :rolleyes:
