Open up the cap-there is a small hole -think left side rim. It is breather/vent for gas fumes. If it is some where blocked then you get what you got
. Try using a thin wire (like bailing wire) from the top and snake it out. If you have access to a good compresser-stick an appropiate size nozzel and blow it out. This is where you will find out if the tube is blocked down the line. Then follow it down to where the black tube exits on right side behind your right foot-zip tied along with 2 other vent tubes. Possibly the zip tie got too tight and squeezed the vent tubes closed. The vent tube may have been kinked somewhere up the line. If any of this is there the expanding gas in the tank will force itself out the gas cover. Easy fix.
