I've tried to use two rubber gaskets (no help). Anyways!! Is there a product or way that I can use to protect my paint from the gas leaking?
I usually use, engine paint. It has ceramic in it, is fuel resistant and heat resistant up to 500 degrees (silver can) or 1000 degress (gold can). If you prefer to not use any of the colors available, then be sure to a can of automotive clear coat. It will be fuel resistant too.
