If you did anything to any extra hard lines in the engine compartment, like plug one after removing a charcoal cannister, then you just might have blocked the fuel tank vent.
If your car had one of the cannisters, the fuel delivery system was closed, no venting in the cap, only through the cannister. If so, pull the cap, add venting filter to the line to keep fumes at low level and filter the air into the tank.

Just a thought.
