Fuel tank pressure

Blocked vent pipe? FWIR it runs forward under the car - ideal for picking up
enough cr*p to block it. Wouldn't expect +ve pressure though - is the bus
standing in direct sunlight all the time or perhaps an exhaust leak warming
the tank?
Don't laugh - I've seen it happen to Fords.

pressure when it clears the threads to knock it out of my hand!
