Doesnt the fuel cap vent?...I know mine does the hissing thing if the tank is near on empty and I always thought the tank vented through the cap. I always figured the tank hissed cause it wasnt venting any air in as the fuel level got lower

check the canister purge solinoid is working and that the line from the fuel tank to the charchoal canister is not blocked in anyway...
