Hi. I currently own Rod Graydon's Silver Fastback in Brisbane, Australia. The fuel tank vents via the fuel cap. However, it leaves a fuel stain down the side of the car. Has anyone experienced this problem and how did they cure it? Would increasing the size of the vent hole help? When the cap is opened fuel dribbles down from the cap. Can only be vapour as it happens regardless of the quantity of fuel in the tank! Your thoughts would be most welcome. Thanks in anticipation

Hi, could not get through on the e-mail above, but just to say, yes, I have found one seal at home.
Cost is £4 incl. P&P.
I'll try PMing payment details.

Yes, OK, I will see if I have one at home and let you know later today. G.

Hi bigt80, Not worried about the cost, would like to get a new seal.
I just need your details and how to pay. Bit new to this Forum.

Hello, yes, that's a nice car.
Is the seal round the cap in good order? If not it can vent via this rather than the correct place. Club has them for £4 + postage & packing - cheaper if you are a member :-).
Cheers. G.
