    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

    yaar initially i thought the same but later after many observations i came to the conclusion that this is the sound of splashing petrol in fuel tank....

    and about honda guys, they are zero....

    i have a city 2010 and i have never heard the petrol noise. I'm a hard driver and drive the car more than 50km a day. My experience with this car is excellent.

    Make sure there is no water bottle in the trunk .

    Good luck with ur car.

    Heard this for the first time.

    I have 2005 city. Never heard such sound even though I'm a very aggressive driver. Nor any of my friends who own City raised this problem.

    I fully agree with your self diagnosed problem. I also notice it sometimes when I reverse the car on a slope.

    Its definitely the sound of splashing fuel in the tank.
