Smoke

Today is the first time I've ridden since last season and saw smoke coming from inside the gas tank. The only thing I have done lately is change oil and spark plugs. It's not a lot of smoke but its there. Any input would be great.

When you did the plugs did you disconnect any vent hoses?

And just to verify, it's not vapor (haze) but actual smoke?

It looks like smoke to me.... I didn't disconnect any hoses, but I guess I should pull the tank again to double check that nothing got disconnected by accident.
