Leak at top of gas tank in 2000 dodge caravan. Does the whole tank need replaced or just the tank filler tube?

That depends on what is leaking and your going to have to determine that. You will probably have to remove the tank to find out.

Hi guys. It's common for the pump assembly, actually the rubber gasket, to leak if the huge plastic nut isn't tightened all the way. There's an arrow molded into the tank and one on the nut. If they are not lined up, even by a couple of inches, it won't seal.

As I said, your likely going to have to remove the tank to find out what is leaking. It depends when it leaks the most, during filling, only when the tank is full or only when the engine is running. All would point to different things.
