83 110 fuel filler question

For those that will be quick to say search, well I have and I am not finding a clear answer, so I will give this a shot.

My new to me 110 200tdi from disco started as a 2.25 petrol. It has the large style metal fuel filler and leaks diesel from the cap. So in my reading I found that it may have the wrong cap, venting etc. I bought a new style plastic filler but the style is way different and not sure it's going to work.

I know fuel leaking or seeping seems to be common with the older style.

What is the best course of action that I should take. I don't know anything about the conversion. It was done in the UK.

Thank you. Be gentle.

What about just replacing the gasket on the cap?

Picture of your cap? After looking at the seal in the cap I would also look at the tank vent and make sure that it is clear.

Mine does the same and suspect the gasket has seen better days. If you find a replacement gasket please let me know and I'll do the same.

I converted mine to the newer style from the mid 90s. Still leaks, got over it.

The only time my fuel filler cap has leaked is when it was not in place.
Anthony: show us what you've got... pictures please:
Cap on filler.
Underside of cap.
What is the condition of the gasket?

Also are you filling it up to the very top of the filler neck?

Here is what I have. The rubber under the cap seems in good condition. Thin and flat. There is a vent line underneath. Don't know if it is blocked but will check. I did fill up a little more than I should have. My first fill up. But that was a few days ago and 100 miles into the tank. My cap was dripping wet with fuel. Click image for larger version

That is the super early style.

I would go for the later, but not new type as you can still use the jerry can extension you have.

I had that style on my SIII. Always leaked, new seals, new caps. Gave up trying.

seals on the caps I have like that are leather. I'll happily take the old filler neck and cap if you upgrade.

Anthony:
In the picture you actually have the cap incorrectly positioned.
The raised strip with 2 holes goes perpendicular to the horizon, not slanted as you have it positioned.
I know it will lock in that position, but the picture shows the cap incorrectly placed.

When our son was in NY with our 110, someone stole the fuel filler cap.
