Another tip for helping to prevent cap seep is to make a simple baffle, take an aluminum can & cut he top & bottom ofn' it - then slit it up the side. Roll it up to fit in the fill & trim the excess height off. When it unrolls it'll hold itself in place against the sides of the threaded part of the filler neck w/o even fasteners - tho you may need to take it back out & cut a small triangle of aluminum off the bottom to allow it to flow faster when filling.
That's a great tip BAWake, I must remember this. Here's what I'm using for a vent, we'll see how it holds up when I get the tank finished....

Nothing is out of my realm,
if it doesn't fit, make it fit! Beer is the answer....what was the question?
A sense of humor costs nothing, why don't people use them more often?
