Default Rusted fuel filler neck, 2000 Mustang

I'm new to this forum, and glad to have found it. I bought my daughter a V6 3.8 2000 mustang a couple of years ago. Today she was filling up with gas and it was leaking through the filler neck. I removed the plastic protection around the neck and It was almost completly rusted in half. I cut a section of the neck out and replaced it with a piece of hose and a couple of clamps for a quick fix until I can get parts. If any of the members have had this problem where would be the best place to get a replacement neck, and what price do they run. Also will I have to drop the tank to install the fuel neck?
Thanks for any information !

This threw my CEL light in my 2000... I had to pay to get it fixed. Parts + labor ran me $300 I think, somewhere in that ballpark.

I'm about 99% sure you will have to drop the fuel tank to get to the neck. As far as where to get it, I have no idea.

Default 2000 mustang rusted fuel filler neck

Does anyone know if this is a common problem with mustangs of this year? I just had to replace one on my wifes car. It leaked for a couple of weeks when you put gas in it and she drove it in the rain and now I have water in the gas tank. missing out pretty bad.

I cut the neck at the bottom right after the bend going in the tank.....It was hard cutting the new part but I didn't want to drop the gas tank. I got about 6 inchs of 1" rubber tubing and slid it over the tube the same place they had the stock plastic cover and two hose clamps. If anything it will be protected better. So far no leaks works like a champ
