smell fuel..

well ive been smelling alot of fuel lately and i took a look at my fuel pump today and around the casing was a bunch of dirt and gas i cleaned all that up and sealed it back really tight. Im hopping this will solve my problem but if it comes back what would be my best option replacing the tank or checking out the fuel lines? thanks guys

our tanks typically don't leak, since they're plastic. Sounds like your fuel sender gasket is going, or maybe a fuel line is rotting.
