Got a '90 accord and when I drive everything seems fine but once my cars parked and I go back to it theres gas under my car. Could it b that I need a new gas tank or could it b that my car can only take certain amount of gas before it comes out? When driving I dont smell gas or anything gas just comes out when its parked. Need help asap

Well then im going to assume its either a rusted through gas tank which should be replaced or one of the o rings connected to the sending unit is not sealing properly either way your going to need to syphen out the gas tank into an approved storage container and drop the gas tank down and out the bottom for further examination. Good luck :)

But to be sure I would take a clean peice of cardboard and put it under the car for the night right after you fill the tank and look for spots in the morning. Also if you drive almost a full tank and you open the gas cap do you hear a sucking sound?

That model had problems with their fuel lines rotting out right near their tanks as well, this was often cover by a plastic shields on the driver's side of the fuel tank. Best to put the car on a lift and check to be sure.
