I have a EU7000is installed on my foodtruck inside an enclosure made from stainless steel diamond with a lid. And it has been working well for 1st year. Recently I started noticing I was losing fuel from the tank through the cap.
1. When I parked the trailer for a month with full tank during the pandemic, I saw the gas escaped and the tank was half
2. There is a brown residue all over the surface, like a dried up gasoline
3. Truck is away from external access so no chance of any fuel theft
4. I closed the fuel cap pretty tight

Question is:
1. Is it even possible there is a gap in the fuel cap?
2. I noticed a rubber gasket on the cap. Does it need replacing
3. Or should I simply buy a new cap?

Finally where should I go to buy these.

replace the fuel cap.
defective cap.
and do not fill the tank as full.
the fuel level needs to be at a min one inch below the top of the tank.
the movement and sloshing on the fuel makes the fuel try to come out the fuel cap vent.
