    I have replaced the gas cap on my BT bp twice already. The blower is less than a year old. The gasket inside the cap keeps ripping around the edges in a circle pattern (a ring) from where the gas cap tightens down at the tank. This is ridiculous, these caps cost almost $20. The cap has to be replaced when this happens because gas leaks out from the cap. Anyone else have this problem? Also, the cruise control switch broke the other day, and its very hard to cold start. (15 pulls). Maybe Im putting the cap on too tight, but still, it should not happen. Dang it. I like my Husqvarna blower, but if this happens again........Shindaiwa

    Where/How can I find an aftermarket cap? $16.95 plus tax for a cap is OUTRAGEOUS!
