Fuel Tank sounds

I just bought a 2010 chevy Camero and I love it! I prchased the car about a month ago. I noticed just today that the fuel tank is making a sloshing sound like a water bottle is getting shook around. I thought it was the windshield wiper fliud bottle in the back of my truck, at first. But then after I took took the bottle out and gave the car a good shake after I shut it off and parked it, it still made that noise…does anyone know what that means? Is the gask tank broken?

Camero? What’s that?

Oh, Chevy Camaro. I get it.

The gas tank has gas in it. If you shake the car the gas will slosh around and you’ll hear it. This doesn’t mean the gas tank is broken.
