Yesterday I did a small ride of about 40km each way.
when I stopped at my half way point and I was under the seat, I heard an odd sound, this is stationary with engine off.
sounded like air escaping somewhere?
I suddenly smelled fuel, then it stopped, I have a spare fuel can under the seat, I checked it. Seal is good no dripping nothing.
I drove about 5 km to where my daughter was to give her a ride home, and it happened again, this time I opened the fuel cap and there was a lot of pressure behind it.

is there an over pressure releife built into the gas cap or something like that?

The valve is under the right quarter panel and vents excessive vapor pressure from the fuel tank on non-CA models (we have a carbon cannister after the valve to trap the fuel vapors and ours doesn't make that noise. This is completely normal.
