Problem could be totally unrelated to the gas cap cover - just an idea since it was the only theing that had changed. What happened was when I was coming off the highway and was slowing down on the off-ramp the engine cut out. Started with no problem, but then at every light and every time I slowed down it would also cut out until I finally parked. After about an hour or so I did the reverse journey. Again, no problem in the beginning, but after coming off the highway again I had the same thing - engine cutting out every time I slowed down. I thought maybe it was the gas cap thing because maybe a vacuum was being created after running for a while. Thought maybe on the highway the power was enough to overcome the engine, but not at slower speeds. Then vacuum was released when it was parked... I haven't tried anything yet - thought I'd check this option first. Any other ideas? I'd also be surprised if the V4 cap was different from the V2 - are you selling any of your's?
