Tonight I heard some not-nice sounds from the rear end. I feared my diff was dying.

But it did sound rather like some sort of motor.. something electrical.. and I had just filled up halfway with gas, from empty. AND, while I was filling up, I was only at halfway, but for some reason, the gas nozzle was doing the auto-shutoff thing like when you're overfilling. (Pressure maybe)

All this to say... does the evap canister/system make any sort of noises or something? Any moving parts involved?

The manual says that noises from the gas tank are particularly common with the MS6 as there is some sort of electrical/mechanical monitoring that goes on back there, even when the car is turned off.

Solid, thanks. I'll take her out for a spin later to see if the problem is still there ;)

It's not a problem. Expect that noise to be there randomly for as long as you own the car.
