Mine did the same and no a new cap did not solve it. No, I did not replace the tank. Simply look at the profile of the interior portion of the gas tank neck where the nozzle contacts it. Over time it has bent it losing full contact with the gasket, with pressure and sloshing fuel some comes out.

Be creative and get the profile back to reality. Problem solved. It has been many years since I solved the issue, seems like I basically took some steel and cut a notch in it making my own tool that would grab the inner lip and allow me to apply downward pressure, bringing the inner lip up and out a little. Hope that makes sense.
