Not good, you have a small leak, small enough to not notice it on the ground I take it, or a vent issue. Have it looked ASAP. It's not good to be breathing in the fumes for long periods or time.

A 2000 could start to have fuel and vapor hoses starting to deteriorate and this garbage for fuel will increase that problem so I agree with Tom get it check ASAP you don't want to windup as a ball of flame rolling down the road.

I have checked the fuel lines carefully including filter with pressure reg...but will check the vapor hoses for detrioration. thanks for your comments. M
