    Default City 2009, fuel tank

    AOA fellows, hope everyone will be fine

    it may feel stupid to some one, but i am really frustrated and wanted to share with you people so if there might be a solution

    i have city 2009, overall i am really happy with this car but it has got almost zero sound deadening. when little stones hit the car from beneath or from sides, that is heard very loudly inside the car
    tunnnnnnnnggggggggg, tinnnnnnnnggggggg like sounds from the doors or may be from beneath the car

    and the most horrible thing which made me create this thread is the fuel tank sound. i guess the fuel tank of city is below the driver seat. when i drive my car on a little uneven road, i hear the sound of petrol jumping inside the tank. I am sorry guys i dont know the exact word to explain to you. this sound is similar to when i put Nestle Water bottle in my car's back seat and drive and the sound of the water that comes from the bottle.

    i dont know if other city owners will be facing the same problem or not, but if you please share your experiences, and if you people have any solution.
    Thanks

    I guess Yoko dB tyres are so silent that you hear such voices in your car. I have a CITY 2010 and i never felt this petrol shake noise in my car.

    well, that tinggg tinggg sound wud be small stones hitting exhaust pipe.actually the exhaust pipe of city goes to the back from side rather then from the middle so its more likely that small stones flying around from tyres will hit it.there certainly is one solution for this but its highly unlikely that u ll do it , atleast i wont but it cetainly will reduce the noise without any harm.

    u can get the noise producing parts coated in black tar compound ( the thick black dense liquid used on roads). u can get it done on exhaust or few other selected areas which gives the sound. there isnt any harm to the body, infact it acts as antirust but i wont get it just cuz it sounds tooooo strange my ex-khyber had this treatment done on complete underside of the car and it had absolutely not rust at all.but it looked ugly frm down side if u get to see it

    and yes, the fuel tank is right beneath the centre consol of ur car, just around the gear level.

    You may also want to look into dynamat or b-quiet matting. They are generally audio related noise/sound reduction products but should help in reducing the noise you are hearing. Only drawback is that the matting would be a lot more expensive than spray on sound deadening treatments.

    Atlas Honda Accountants take too much of salary etc, thats why it makes economical sense to them to remove any such items like

    Sound deadening
    Trunk light
    Side Air bags
    Tank Buffer

    They know we Pakistanis have this "aura" of eminence while driving a Honda City - so it doesnt matter if it has sound deadening - at least they look cool in their minds while the car looks complete from outside (Honduh Standards)

    Now to tackle the problem

    The fuel tank sits under you and the passenger - Cant fix that - its pretty sturdy PA-GF plastic - dont worry it wont rupture (most german cars come with plastic tanks too - no rusting issues) - it also quietens sloshing sound (can you imagine sitting on a metal tank with fuel sloshing in it - ouch)

    you need to get hold of some proper sound deadening mats (Dynamat) and stick it to the floor and door insides, and a piece of foam (or liquid spray styrofoam for the tank top)

    It will dampen any echo you complain of - Do also make sure that your stick on door plastic curtain sheets are not missing. (Atlas Honda may also put this in the above list)

    thanks for your help bro, the ting ting sound i mentioned what i meant to say was the its sound dampening is so low if a stone hits it, its sound is echoed inside the cabin. not necessarily exhaust pipe, even doors and the underneath of the car.

    true and we have to live with that.....

    i have got a 2010 city few months back, initially there were no sounds at all, but now i feel the sound like liquid. i always have my tank filled upto neck, but still sound comes. what i have noticed is that, its not the sound of petrol or petrol tank, i think its more of suspension thing, i m pretty sure about that because this sound wasnt there for 2 3 months initially. i remember i had some v bad jumps & uneven driving experience once on sort of off-road track. the sound started that. i ll go next week for 5000 inspection & will discuss it with showroom guys.

    FAQs

    I had my Nissan Maxima matted in Toronto via a group buy on the online Maxima Enthusiast community there.
    Dunno what the pricing is for dynamat locally in Pakistan. Best thing to do would be to inquire abt it at some local audio shop.

    B-Quiet sound deadening materials - B-Quiet Ultimate - Better than Dynamat!! brownbread

    found another one. these are quiet expensive, for me atleast.

    another thing which comes in my mind is that written on their website, they say that they become hot as they convert the sounds and viberations into heat energy. will this not increase the temperature inside the cabin which will not be tolerabe in summers...
