When the tank warms up and gas cap is on tight, pressure builds in tank causing gas to leak out around the fuel pump. As long as the gas cap is loose or off it does not leak. Have already replaced gas cap but it still leaks.
Do you

The tank is supposed to build pressure but its not supposed to push out fuel. You have a bad fuel pump gasket or a leaking line
