kaptkronos, You are suppose to have a rubber fuel filler to tank hose - not metal. There should be metal hose clamps on both ends that attach the rubber hose to the metal filler tube and the fuel tank. If these clamps are not tight or have slipped off the tank or filler tube connections, then they would leak. If the rubber hose has a wear spot that has worn through the hose, then the entire hose should be replaced and new clamps installed, after finding and repairing whatever caused the hose to rub and wear a hole through the hose.

I see you are in Dallas, TX so if you need a new hose take your old one to:

GT Southwest Hose
644 W. Mockingbird Lane
Dallas, TX 75356
Toll Free 1-800-966-1393

They will be able to supply you with the correct hose and clamps for your rig.

Good luck - Glenn

I have a 1967 Ford pickup that has the same problem off and on, the difference being that you can smell it because the gas tank is behind the seat!!! The hose needs to be rubber because of the flex between the filler and the tank, but it will begin to leak and need to be replaced at some point...
