'05 with Fuel Leak

STRONG gas smell coming from rear of car prompted me to look underneath. There is a very fast stream of gas coming from front (engine side) of tank. Is this the fuel pump gone bad, clogged fuel filter or a possible broken/cracked gas line?

If you want for me to check your vehicle for open recalls, please send me the last 8 digits of your VIN.

How about VIN 67821007? It's an '06. I tried to send you a PM, but I don't have enough messages yet.

mrblanche,
I do see a special coverage on your vehicle for fuel spotting that is good until 04/14/2016 or 120,035 MI, whichever occurs first. Are you still within the mileage perimeters?

Yes, I am. Only about 75,000 on it. It's definitely leaking from the lines on top of the fuel tank. What do I need to do? Any numbers I can refer the service department to?
