Fuel leak near rear driver side tire

OK I have a pretty severe fuel leak that just randomly started today. It is a constant drip of probably near a few drops a second. I called and my vehicle is not covered under any recall, so I'm pretty much screwed on this one, hopefully an easy fix. I'm gonna get pictures up of what I can get. It's hard to tell exactly where the leak is coming from because it's rainy. The car won't start unless I put the key to the on position for a few seconds before starting it. 2005 base model with around 131000 miles. Pictures are ckming

This is where it's leaking from. That is just in from of the rear drover side tire.



In the second picture you can see how much I leaking out. I moved my car onto the road so I can lift it to check and that is the trail.

I called the dealership and they said that my car is not covered under any recall. So what should I do now? I don't think there Is any way they'll fix it for free. I am a poor college guy with a car payment and only one car. I have no idea what I'm going to do.

Exactly what my car did. Hole in the fuel line. It'll be over $200

Oh I see. I just wemt to a jumkyard and got a used pump.. I know its not the best option but I really don't have a choice now. Hoping it works through the winter till I can get some more money. I got the seal from an auto store. Gonna try to get it swapped out tonight. Worst part is that I filled my tank from empty this morning lol

My problem wasn't the pump. Its the fuel line. So I guess that's a relief. I have the car up on a lift at my neighbors for the night. Gonna go tomorrow and get some fuel line piping and get her all patvhed up
