Default 60 Barfing fuel

I was wondering if anyone has an idea what would cause my 60 to barf fuel out the filler tube?

I parked at a trailhead for 4 days with 3/4's of a tank. It was at a tiny bit of an angle tilted to the passenger side. I could smell gas when I parked, but didn't think much of it since it's a 2F. When I hiked out after 4 days, I found the huge puddle of fuel and realized that gas had been trickling out the filler past the gas cap. Lost 1/4 tank and a lot of paint.

I could see this happening if I had a bad gas cap, parked on a huge angle and had a full tank, but that was not the case. I am wondering if there is some sort of pressure issue that forced it out?
