That sounds like an annoying issue. I never fill my truck more than about 3/4 of a tank because of similar issues. Luckily for me she is a toy and not a daily driver. That being said, if I am going to go cruising I can fill her up all the way because I know that she will burn off the top part of the tank anyhow.

The new cap I recently purchased had a one-way plastic valve in it, and I drilled a 1/4" hole through the plastic. No more rediculous tank pressure.
This excess pressure can't be good on the float needle/seat in the carburetor.
