'95 Jeep Wrangler leaking gas?!

Just noticed today driving home from work that I smelt gas very strongly. Pulled into my driveway, got out and noticed that gas was leaking near my driver side back wheel. Moved it away from the house just in case, and it seems to have slowed down a lot now/almost stopped, but what could be causing this? Just filled it up with gas a couple days ago. I let it go on its own til it was full, but it actually overflowed and I had to stop it. I've driven about 45 miles since filling it with no issue, but now I have this leak. I'm hoping this is a cheap fix, can anyone help? Thanks.

Your fill and vent hoses are at that corner. You can remove your lic. plate bracket, and gas cap back splash thing. You'll need a torx set. Take a flashlight and peek at whre the hoses attach to the gas tank. Hopefully you can see something. If the leak is coming from above the hoses, your fuel pump seal might be leaking. Post pix if u can.

same leak here

I had the same leak. It was the inlet hose to the filter. Where the rubber hose meets the hard line from the tank. I tried tightening the hose clamp and it popped allowing the gas to spray. I replaced the hose clamp with a new one and all is good.

There is maintained pressure on that line so it will leak as long as the pressure is above the point of causing the leak. Then it will stop till the next time it is driven.

My 93 had the same problem, ended up lowering the tank enough to trace it down to a hose on top of the tank that had pulled loose from its mounting nipple, pushed it back on and havent had a problem since. If you can lower the rear of the tank a little you should be able to look between the frame and body behind the drivers side tire to see if its the same problem as mine. hope this helps! ( I am pretty sure it was just a vent hose, which allowed fuel to pool a little on top of the tank.)

When I first got my yj it leaked a little was just the fill cap though, I got lucky i guess.

My '95 has been sitting for about 3 weeks and when I went to start it today, I saw gas dripping from the rear tire on the driver side.

Could this be the fuel pressure regulator gauge or the fuel pump seal?

Any help would be great!

My 91 had a gas leak in that area so while it was in the shop I had them replace all the rubber lines in the system front to back the last thing I want is a fire

With yours being a '97 (TJ) it should be OBD II compliant. Pull codes and see if you have any for the vapor recovery system. Sounds like one of your vapor recovery lines is broken and allowing a vacuum leak. Also look for a P 1299 code (vacuum leak detected with IAC valve closed).

Thank you. I will have to wait to
Check the codes again.

The first time round was some misfiring codes and a po1234. Which , is the tps and I did change out that. Check cleared its self and then came back. Idle was going back to normal then went high as check light went off. But drove the jeep to work and back. 15 miles plus each way. And then the check light came back on and idle went high. Could it
Be the leak from (looks to be the top of tank) the gas tank causing a vacc leak and dumping fuel to motor and idling high? Like I said I need to check codes once again.
