IR Diesel Compressor

I need a new fuel cap for an IR 175 diesel compressor. It has a plastic fuel tank and I need to know if I need a vented or unvented cap. IR wants $75 for a new one and they don't seem to know if it's vented or not.

UnVented. Cross match with other brands at an auto parts store.
I believe the pressure rating is the important factor

I thought it was probably unvented but I'm not sure because it somehow is now missing. The tank has a return line. I found this online and emailed.
