Really kids, it is no big deal. The 3 clicks are like the clicking a torque wrench makes. If it clicks 3 times, it is on tight enough.

Why so tight?

Answer: OBDII. Gas fumes escaping from the tank are monitored now (unlike with the old Corolla mentioned above). The system monitors the tanks pressure, and if it is leaking (ie: loose or missing gas cap) the check engine light comes on, and you go to the dealer for a service (or so they'd like you to do).

So, to conclude, the days of the hill-billy rag pluggin' yer gas hole are over.
