Anybody here ever come across any material to make a gas can cap gasket that actually seals AND doesn't grow to double size after contacting gas?

Cut a piece of cardboard from a tablet back or shoe box.

Cardboard, good idea. You might soak it in paraffin to protect it from the gas.

Leather works great.

A local auto supply should have cork for cutting your own gaskets. Why pay for shipping that costs more than the product? :-)

I keep my old worn-out boots to salvage the leather uppers for gasket making.

There ya go, Dave. I do the same. That way there's no cost for material or shipping.

How about an O-ring?
Are you talking about a metal gas can? Or a plastic gas "can"?

I've used the top from a Chinese soup container. If you don't like Chinese takeout you can get a 1/4 pound of potato salad.
