Woke up yesterday, went to the garage and smelled a strong odor of gasoline. Upon further investigation, I discovered my truck had a rather large puddle of fuel under the fuel tank. I put the truck up on ramps and poked around underneath: Fuel was steadily dripping from somewhere in the vicinity of the Fuel filter/pump. Tank was full, so I decided it was time for a professional garage to tackle this one. Dropped it off at a friends garage yesterday and should know what the problem is today.
Anyone have a similar issue?

Got the tank down and the shop says it looks like the forward vent is leaking. They put some epoxy on the area that was leaking. I will fill it up and give it a test. Definitely report back with the findings as I am sure this is something other people are interested in.
After three years of following 3 different Dodge truck forums, this is the first time I've heard of this problem. I bet it will come up a couple more times in the next 6 months or so, just the way this stuff runs.

I am happy to report, the epoxy is holding! I filled the tank full and nary a leak! I plan on keeping this truck for a while, so I will have my buddy order a new tank and have it installed. In the interim: No leak!!
