Where is that vent valve??

The 82 300CD has quite a 'tude. Driving along today I heard the wierdest sheetmetal being hit noise.

Kinda a hollow THUNK, from behind me. Pulled into a gas station, walked all around, finally popped the fuel cap, after a bit of trying I got it to break vacuum with a whoosh.

Got it home with the cap off, pulled the trunk junk out and my tank has a divot where it sucked in.

I see what looks like a vent outlet/inlet next to the fuel cap, but where's the check valve (assuming there is one right??).

This puppy is moving itself closer to the fix and sell category, but I like the CD body so much I'm trying not to pass judgement just yet.
