    i had the same problem with mine. i was screwing the cap down until it was tight, then when i went to take it off it felt cross threaded as there was resistance all the way un screwing it. i started just gently snuging it down and it quit leaking and stays straight on the threads. the insert into the neck of the tank helps correct this also.

    swapping the caps deffinetly works. found that out this weekend. the gas cap threads onto the oil cap way better and the same the other way. cheap to.
    THATS ME INSIDE YOUR HEAD!!

    I too did the oil cap/gas cap swap. My machine stayed on its track for the rest of the day, so I'm not sure how well it works. Will have to try this weekend I guess.
