[DML] fuel vent / fuel pump / venting problem



A few weeks ago I developed a problem with the pressure in the fuel 
tank. My fuel pump was humming as loud as a siren and began gulping 
for gas. When I take the fuel cap off there is a loud whhooooooooosh 
of air into the tank. Its as if air isn't being replaced as fuel is 
used inside the tank.

Had a new fuel vent pitot put on and the humming of the fuel pump has 
subsided but comes back (not as loud) sporatically.  Took the fuel cap 
off today and wwwwhhhhhhhhooooooooooooooooooooooooooooosh a ton of air 
got sucked into the tank.

I think this may have to do with the heat wave here (115-120 degrees F 
in the day). Any ideas what's going on?
