Q: Gas is leaking from fuel tank

asked by on

I filled the tank and smell gas while driving idling or sitting off. The car has very bad rust on the bottom but runs fine. Theres a small puddle after parked for 30 minutes, this doesn't happen when the tank is not very full.

My car has 137000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
