And you just saved me a lot of cursing Duane!

THE CORRECT GAS CAP SHOULD LEAK ON TANK INVERSION AS IT HAS
SMALL AIR CHANNELS TO ALLOW YOUR TANK TO "BREATH" AS GAS IS DRAINED
TO THE CARBURETOR WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING. IF
THE CAP WAS FUEL & AIR TIGHT, A VACUUM WOULD DEVELOP IN THE TANK
AND YOUR ENGINE WOULD SHUT DOWN FOR LACK OF FUEL.


TANK CAPS ARE AVAILABLE THAT DO NOT HAVE THE BREATHER
OPTION AND WILL NOT LEAK ON TANK INVERSION.

I'm getting ready to clean out my gas tank with POR-15. Is there a trick to getting
the gas cap to seal? When I invert the tank it leaks. Cap is new, new seal in place
and the sealing surface on top of the tank looks in good shape. ??
