Leaky fuel valve

I have a Yamaha 25litre plastic fuel tank with the built in glass fuel level indicator that can be screwed down to seal in vapours.
It has now decided to leak out through the valve and I am wondering where I can get replacements or do I need to change the whole tank?Any DIY solutions also appreciated as these tanks are expensive.

You coul always call Yamaha and try out there customer care,

My tank did this after awhile and I just went with it, as the spill wasn't much, Does it leak when it is screwed down?

Yeap it leaks very badly and I would be unhappy to have fuel escaping for obvious reasons!Anyway thanks for the tip I will try customer service but I won't hold my breath.
