Petrol noise from my tank for 2012 Mustang

Hi All,

I am using 2012 ford mustang v6 premium car. When I am driving or when I apply breaks I hear petrol sound from the tank...its really annoying and I hear it even on highways ...Is it normal for all mustang cars or something wrong with my car ??

What does petrol sound like? Do you hear it sloshing around in the tank? That certainly isn't normal at all.

I've never noticed before in my 2011. However I have driven a rental car where it was insanely annoying. I think it was a Nissan Altima.

"Petrol sound"??? You a transplanted Brit?

You mean that you hear the fuel pump running?

If that is the case, then, no, it's not normal. About the only time you should be able to hear the pump is right when you first turn the key on but before starting the motor, and you would only hear it for a second or two.

I would look in the spare tire well and also in the trunk lift the side carpet to check inside the body panels behind the rear tires. +1 on not normal unless you have super hearing.....

2012 V6 traded in for a 2017 VW GTI.

Hello Mustang machman,

Welcome to the forum! My name is Deysha with Ford Service. You should have your dealer check it out. Your service manager is in the best position to let you know if there is any work needed, coverages, recalls, or any assistance available. Let me know the outcome.
