Just had a weird problem with my GT.

I was filling up with diesel last night and noticed a small pool of diesel sitting in the fuel cap "bay" (?). It's the first time ever seeing this but I cleaned it up and thought nothing more of it. I checked again this morning when I got to work and there's another pool of diesel sitting just under the fuel cap. Is it possible for fuel to come back up the filler nozzle? Thought the anti-syphon device would stop this or do I have a bigger problem?

Fuel spilling out here would explain why I only got 730km from my last tank instead of the usual 850km.

sure its fuel? that bay does collect rain water though

check the bodywork and see if there are oil marks running down as i'm sure the diesel would stain it a bit.
