Sloshing sound from under the car

Since day one I've been noticing sloshing sound from under the car. It's most noticeable when you parallel park on the quiet street and switch between forward and reverse a couple times - when you stop there is this sloshing sound sound somewhere under the car. Everything seems to be working fine.

Anybody has an idea what this could be? I think it's a gas moving in the gas tank but not really sure.

Do you hear it when you *really* need to pee?

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

Next time you fill up see if the sound changes or stops. Noise from the fuel tank is not unusual.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

I think it has to do with the new ones being so quiet you can hear the smallest noises.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

Sounds like fuel tank.

Has me wondering if they're baffled? Most unusual.

Ding Ding Ding....your right, I just looked under mine tonight and the gas tanks spans both sides of the car. Goes all the way over the exhaust to the passenger side. I guess that is how they expanded the tank size.

Makes perfect sense the gas is slushing to the other side.
