Do what I did, well not step by step or that will drive you nuts. I got the rubber seal out and hit the cap in two steps, inside then outside with dry time in between. Use primer to suit chosen paint. I used the brightest yellow oil based enamel spray paint can I could find

Several primer coats then several top coats, days if hardening time then glued seal back in with more than original. Result is a bright and happy fill cap so easy to see. It also mimmicks modern idea of anything driver should check under bonnet us yellow
