If you suspect that there is a problem with the installation of a component I recommend that you return to where the part was installed.

If it is not possible to return or for any other reason you don't want to do that I would ask for help from a mechanic at YourMechanic to diagnose where the fuel is leaking from so a repair can be made so your car will be safe to drive again.
