Yup. And I thought of a test: next time I ride I'm going to wrap duct tape around JUST the rim of the gas cap. Putter around a bit. Then see if there is a thin coat of fuel up on top of the cap, or down by the base of the neck. Once I'm positive where it's coming from, I can plan better.
But if I had to play to win, I'd place my bet on the vent hole. The gas cap has a fuel-safe washer in it.
