1979 columbia comutter tube frame gas leak

Laurel Hoffnagle /

I have the tube frame columbia I just purchased. The problem is it looks like a plastic plug at the top of the gas tank directly under the seat. When I ride it gas squirts under the seat.. Can anybody tell me what this plug is? is it a replacement part? if so what it it called? or can I just seal it up with a screw or something? Thanks.

You must be missing the top half, it snaps onto the lower half.

...................and yes, a screw will do, cuz the filler cap is vented too, but you'll have to remove that screw to completely fill the tank. You will want to completely fill your tank, cuz it's the smallest in all of mopeddom.
