I'll try to remember to put a hand next to the cap next time I remove it and see if I can't feel air coming in or out - I just assumed it was a vaccum but I guess I don't know for sure.

But seriously: channel locks to remove it yesterday, and I have a kung fu grip.

Of course... but it was the only thing that could explain why my tank pressurized.

It felt like air whooshing out when I got gas.

Upon further reading, that much air coming out is a symptom of a faulty EVAP - is there a valve somewhere near the canister I can check? I am non-AEL.
