fuel is leaking from the top of the gas tank, but only when the engine is running. I can't see where the fuel is actually leaking from, but when I reach up where the fuel lines are, it seems like there is a plug missing. I can't find any hoses that are disconnected, and there is a hole that doesn't feel threaded. I also haven't been able to find any schematics (online or at any parts store) to show wether or not there is something missing; any ideas or info would be very much appreciated.

There are two lines running to the top of your tank'that can leak fuel. Also a gasket between the fuel sending unit and the tank.

There also may be a vent that should have a vent cap on it sometimes these will fall off generally these will only leak when the tank is close to full. I would drop the tank and find out exactly where it is leaking.

This is very dangerous.
