rusted fuel cap
I just realized the fuel cap of my bike is rusted, I had a tough time opening it and had to come back from the gas station to open it.
the cap completely comes out and is a cylinder roughly 2 inches in dia and 2 inches in height. the part that comes in contact with the tank shows some rust. What can I put on it to prevent rusting. I am sure it will come in contact with the fuel and I don't want anything to pass in the fuel system, not rust for sure.
machine oil? WD40? silicon based lubricants?

How about using sand paper to remove the rust from the area which is in contact with fuel.
