Re: [DML] Re: Need guidance regarding gasoline leak

I had the same exact problem.  My solution was repeatedly trying to
tighten that cap / ring until it stopped.  I had to use one of those
rubber jar opener grips until my hands hurt.  Maybe an oil filter
strap wrench would work...  I finally got it to stop, so that probably
isn't necessary or recommended.
