I have owned a 1996 ford ranger since about 1999--about 2 years ago I noticed that when I was filling up-amounts of gas were leaking onto the ground-finally after further investigation--right below the gas tank entrance (below the gas cap) there was a plastic or neoprene hose connected to the fill pipe that had about a 3 inch rotted gash in it. What to do? -Thanks, Scott

It sounds like this line that you have a crack in is part of the filler neck which is actually a vent line or EVAP emissions line.

If that is the case, then we need to replace the filler neck.

I will attach the info below on how to do this.

You may need to lift the truck so here is a guide that will help with this:

Please see the attached info below on how to replace the filler neck which should come with this line attached to it.

Let us know what questions you have on this. Thanks
