New member - Hissing Petrol Tank

Hi all, I have bought a totaly standard 03 metalic blue 636 and its great, especially with all the recent good weather. I have had it for about 3 months now and have noticed when i come to stop after about a minute the petrol tank is letting off a hissing sound, when I open the petrol cap it pops open and air either rushes out or in not sure which. I have spoken to several people and they have mixed feedback, some say there is a problem others say it is just something that happens. Anyone got any idea's???

Just the fuel getting heat soaked and the tank venting. (usually via the key hole). I don't know if it's a problem on an 03 636 though.

only had my 636 a month i have'nt noticed anything like that,but in my experience as a motor mechanic (cars) it sounds like it could have a tank breather problem,I could be wrong though,it may be worth taking some tech advice on it.
