Gas Leak

Hi Im here to talk about gas tanks. When I tried to fill up the tank on my 78 Dodge Minnie Winnie Class C Motorhome the gas flooded the gas station and nearly had folks running for the hills The gas seems to be leaking from the top of the gas tank. When there is little gas there is no leak. When putting in gas more than a quarter tank the gas leaks. Could someone give advice on what to do to fix the "problem"?

Does it leak only while putting gas in or leaks continually after 1/4 full or more? If only while putting gas in I would suspect the fill tube, rubber deteriorated or loose clamps.
A constant leak indicates a hole or crack in tank at whatever level it starts leaking at.

This could easily (last time I'll use easily in this post) just be the fill line rotting. The bad news is I think you need to drop the tank and inspect. It could be a pretty cheap fix if you can do it yourself. It won't be done easily (oops) but it can be done. Be careful and have a helper, jacks, etc.
