Fuel leak from gas tank / petcock

Hi

I have discovered a small fuel leak from the gastank were the petcock are mounted. Is there any out there who have had the same problem? I post a picture wich will show the area.

Anybody that have an idea if it's inly the gasket / O-ring between fueltank and petcock that is worn?

Probably just that oring. I replaced mine with a generic o-ring from the auto parts store.
