    I always use POR-15 for that. I paint halfway up the neck.Then a few days later come back and paint the whole neck with either silver or glossy black POR-15.Just be sure you don't close the tank cap until the POR-15 is fully cured or you won't get it back open.

    Cap the filler hole with a bathtub plug befor painting. Carefully remove plug after paint is dry, carefull of bridgeing. Clean the area where the paint meets metal with wax and grease remover then use a paintbrush and apply an epoxy primer over the edge. Of course make sure it is invisible when the cap is in place.

    I've been using epoxy primer to seal the cap area where the paint meets the metal. No problems with peeling. Works for me! [img]graemlins/bigokay.gif[/img]

    I tape the bung off 1/8 below the edge when I paint and use clear model airplane dope to paint the filler neck. Its clear,fuel resistant, cheap,easy and works!!! Any hobbie shop that carries model airplanes (the gas powered r/c ones)will have it.

    How would you suggest I do that with a cleanse install a/c cap? I'm recorded to the top of the lip around the cap. Would I eliminate the record before the cc so it goes over the edge?

    all gas tanks have a filler bung regaurdless of type , year , or manufacturer. i usally tape on the bung right where it meats the actual tank, just barely getting paint on the bung sizzlinghotdeluxe. this works for me and i can't put a number on how many tanks i have painted. if you paint too far on to the bung gas vapors will get under the finish and cause problems.
