I have one to add...

When driving slowly and with the drivers window open I have been noticing a rattling noise, especially when going over any bumps in the road.

Turns out that the spring to close the fuel filler flap had become worn and the flap was rattling about. It can probably be fixed just by bending the old spring a bit and applying a squirt of WD40 - failing that the part (#51171888374) is listed on realOEM as costing $0.33!
