Glad to hear of your safe passage, Bruce. I concur that an o-ring on the fuel fill cap is essential, along with a nice "glaze" of lithium grease to act as both as an additional barrier and as a sort of anti-seize so you can really screw the cap tightly.
I have been mulling over the utility of actually replacing the flush fill cap on passage with a short, teflon-taped length of pipe in order to eliminate the issue of standing water leaking down the fill hose. Filling via jerry can would be simpler with a bit of height (I'm talking six inches here) as well.
