Re: Begging to be a hot rod.

500 feet sounds about right for a gas cap not breathing , if you hear air going past the cap when loosened, a new one is needed.

Re: Annoying rattle.

I found a rattle from the crank hole cover. A little silicone sealer will stop the rattle but still allow you to easily open it if needed. Good luck, rattles have been chased unsuccessfully for years.
