Q: What causes gas tank to make a poping sound? on 1998 Chevrolet S10

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
at different times I smell gas fumes. I hear a popping sound come from the gas tank. I can be parked and it running and it pops or a few minutes after turning off engine I will hear a pop from the gas tank. Does anyone know why it is popping? Has anyone else had this problem? thanks Donna
