'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!
