Rich,

Here is a picture of Neil's installation of the new gas cap with the twist off cap removed. It appears that the twist off cap fits directly onto the filler neck tube. The link you provided mentioned a new filler neck tube is required for the replacement kit with the twist off cap. Hope this helps and if you need any other pics let me know.

Rich,
Would it help to make a thick rubber gasket?

The twist lock structure is in every filler neck. Most auto parts stores will have a cap that will fit and seal. If you do this you will need to remove the spring and seal from your old pop off cap to make room for the twist on cap.

I absolutely love my inside gas fill solution. No more shutting off as you fill your tank. No more spilling. Looks totally stock with the pop open as a fake that is blanked off. Easy to convert back to stock, so the next owner can squat on their knees and listen to the gurgle sound to ensure they do not spill over and ruin the paint behind the bumper and behind the license plate....

The ability to stand up like a normal human and fill my tank.... PRICELESS!

That's an option Arlie. Didn't consider that to be honest.
Definitely a less expensive option to the alternative.

Did you cover the filler or only around the filler?

That's what I figured. Thanks for confirming Marty!

I do like your approach Rob and something I may consider longer term.

I'll miss kneeling and paying respect to my car when filling up.
Can't forget the pad of paper towels on the bumper under the gas cap to catch any overflow in case I miss that gurgle

For now I'll just drive more and get the fuel level down a bit until I decide on a solution.
