Dr250 Leaking Gas from Petcock

Leaking gas from petcock when in the ON position or reserve. I installed a new petcock and its doing the same thing. It was also leaking out of the carb but I took it apart and cleaned the floats & jets and now it seems to just be leaking from the petcock. any ideas?

This is a 1990 dr250 dirt model

look if it's the petcock, or the gasket between it and the tank

it looks like it could be from the gasket. Its just strange because its a new gasket. I cleaned the surface on the tank where the gasket touches and its nice and clean. the screws are also very tight holding it in. is there something I can use to seal it better?
