Slushing noise

Hi everyone,
I have a ctr and i reacently noticed a slushing noise from inside the car. It comes from underneath were the handbrake lever is and sounds like theres a bottle of water stuck
Think its possibly the petrol tank but not sure. when the radio and heating is off its reallly frustrating. Anyone else have this problem??
thanks everyone

As CCC says, its the petrol tank. It is located under the drivers seat i think which is why you can hear the petrol sloshing around especially when nearly full.

Wow thanks for the quick reply guys,
It was frustrating me so much and thought it possibly was the petrol tank.
Never had a car with such a noisy petrol tank!!! was nearly going to go to Honda and enquire about it.
Thanks again

If you sit idiling and rev the car the sloshing gets louder, it is the fuel tank and noise of fuel pumping up to the engine.

Try going over 5000 rpm this will get rid of the noise for you! all jocking aside thou it is the fuel tank is quite a common issue with the ctr and certain other models.
