all too familiar....it is due to broken rollover valve or connector. See this link http://www.wranglerforum.com/f8/fuel-leak-226982.html.

It is super easy if just the valve and rubber connector needs to be replaced. You may have to drop tank if the rubber hose needs replaced as well, not sure if you can squeeze your hand over the tank. On my jeep, it is just the valve and connector, so a 2 min job literally!
