Greasecar tank filler cap leaking
Just installed a used GC 40 gallon tank. Today was the first day I filled it up all the way. Noticed after coming home from work some oil on the top of the tank & running down the side of it. 99% sure it is coming from the cap. Of course it is only leaking when I drive so it is hard to tell for sure but I believe it is leaking around the rubber gasket that seals the cap to the flange. It doesn't seem to seal as tightly as I think should. The gasket on the cap looks fine though. The tank has been sitting empty for over a year.
Never had a GC tank before so is this a common problem?? Is the cap serviceable or do I just need to get a new cap?? Tried logging on to the GC forum to post this there & for some reason it won't let me. I will call them if I have to.
