Gas Tank problem?

I picked up my car yesterday, Is it normal to hear the gas bounceing around in the tank? I called the dealer and of course they had no clue. So, could someboby please go out to there car and bounce it around a little and see if you can hear the gas sloushing from side to side. I have about three quarters of a tank or so. Thanks

I haven't noticed it, however it hard to hear over a roaring engine and blasting stereo. Next time I take it out I'll try to behave myself and turn the radio off and listen...

This was posted about before and yes it seems to be "normal" for the Camaro.

Hmmm, Thanks Camarossrs2150, shiftz33 I did a search and didnt find anything, I met another person with a Camero who was nice enough to rock the back end of his. No sloushing, rocked mine sloushing. Dealer is clueless if something is wrong or not. I guess until they figure out what they are doing I'll keep the radio going. Thanks for the reply's

Could be water in the AC unit, are you sure it is coming from the back and not down by your feet?

Mine only makes the noise when the fuel tank is between 3/8 and 3/4 full. I've confirmed my A/C drain is functional and the "noise" comes from the fuel tank.

I was driving my wife's car to the gas station the other day (I avoid Tom Thumb like it's the plague) ran out of gas...ended up gliding to a gas station.

Only time in my life that I drove it until I ran out of gas, lol.

It is the tank per the dealer. It will happen they state between 3/4 and full. The baffle according to them doesn't go to the the top.
My CAMARO has other problems the dealers body shop has caused. They were putting strips on stated they were bad so they took them off the glue seperated from the strips??, while removing the messed up strips they splattered , this blue tinted crap on the windshield, that wont wash off, on the cowl panel and spots on the paint. It goes back this AM and I am VERY worried about what the body people are going to mess up this time when trying to fix something else. This is happening at the Milford Chevy dealer for those who live around Cincinnati.

I stopped at another dealer and they said sorry the problem needs fixed where I bought it. They said I should have bought from them even though they had no allocations left to order. A little disgruntled. I am calling some other dealers to see if they will at least look at it and let me know what this "blue splatter" even is.

While your at it call GM customer service and log a complaint about the dealer that wont service your car. That is crap.

Your going to love this. Went back to the Chevy dealer in Milford, and it became a screaming shouting mess. Thought there was going to be a fight in front of the showroom. The manager said "Yeah well the salesman does have a temper what did you do to set it off" WTF, they screwed up my car, and have no clue how to fix it. Calling GM customer service again there has to be a way to resolve this issue in a peaceful manner. I hope... Now I don't know if I'm getting stripes or not.
I'm not asking for much. Put the car back the way it was from the factory without the blue spots.

Finally got a phone call back. Meeting with the owner of the dealership and the body shop that messed up the strip. If they start yelling its not there fault again or ANY raised voices I am calling the police this time. I am at a total loss on getting this corrected. I am trying to get my money back for the stripe, have them detail the car and to get rid of the blue polka dot spots on the paint and cowl panel without messing the paint up. Then I can go somewhere else. I loved the car when I first drove off now it has turned into a hassel with headache attached.
