    So today I filled up on gas and I drove home and had no problems. After leaving again I was parked on a hill and gas started to drop from a spot right under my gas tank. On a level ground my car does not drop but with a tilt my car will drip gas. Can anyone tell me what they think is going on and if it's happened before to anyone else?

    I mean idk maybe that's why I came to a forum?? I didn't know if this is a common problem or if I just need to go ahead and buy another gas tank? I'm inexperienced that's why I'm asking

    Take a shot at it. What do you have to lose?

    You have a leak. What do you need to know first to fix it?

    Get under there and find out where the leak is coming from.
    My guess, the tank is probably rotten in a spot high on the tank, so when the car is filled and on an incline on that particular side, it leaks.
