I had 410 miles when I noticed smell of gas.Looked under passengers and gas was leaking after fueling.The plastic ring that on top of tank was one turn loose.Something you might want to check.

I just noticed mine was leaking I got at least a half a turn out of it by hand but it doesn't seem like it wants to stay tight

You can go a little more by using something to tap on the fins. I used a large screwdriver and hammer but remember, plastic threads.....:)

If the threads are loose, try Teflon tape. Just a little bit will do it.

I guess one could always spin it off and slap some thread lock /loc-tite on it.
