    If the line to your tank is plugged off, you'll get a popping or venting when opening the gas cap. Even without the emissions solenoids I have my vent line hooked to a cannister, it cuts down on fumes and the tank can 'breathe' or vent. Without it, the gas tank is getting sucked in as the gas it's under vacuum.
