sloshing sounds from gas tank

this could be normal behavior, but on a '75 450SL, I once in a while hear the contents of the gas tank sloshing around.

Usually happens when I am backing down my driveway, or coming to a stop at a light...no gas odors and such....

just wondering...

MB modified the fuel tank for this problem, also some folks complained of a ""toilet"" flushing sound in the fuel tank as well.
