leaking diesel - ford fiesta 1.8

hi all, me again....[:D]

ive had this problem for a while now, just wondered if u lot had anymore ideas on what it could b. (yeah dont say "dont fill it up fully")


when ive filled up with diesel, after the cap is replaced & locked, driving down the road it starts to leak diesel from the area where the cap seals with the filler neck. no rust to be seen in the aera of the neck or cap.

done so far:-

replaced filler cap, replaced the filler neck top (bit which the cap locks into)

could it be:-

the filler neck has got a blockage sum where down it (breather pipe as well), or am i barking up the wrong tree[:b]
