Craftsman chainsaw fuel cap

Hi all
Has anyone had this problem?
My sears 16" saw's fuel cap closes by a course almost an acme type of thread. Over time the threads on the cap seemed to have swelled up, causing me to use quite a lot of force to remove, and replace it [pliers], it's not cross threaded, just very tight. I was wondering if it could have anything to do with the alcahol in the gas, as it is around 8 to 10 years old. I am going to get a new cap, has anyone else
seen this?

Yes, many times, I think it's the ethanol, have to buy a new one.
The newer ones shouldn't be bothered by ethanol.
