Yes, that's what Ferball shows how to do in this link...
I made one today and it works nicely. We're having a warm break here in Maryland so I've been getting in some nice rides... put around 25 miles on the new tank and cap today with no leaks... woohoo! I hear that even northern Minnesota was balmy today in the mid fifties... weird, but nice.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
