gas leak at filler pipe / tank

Hello all,
I have a large gas leak where the filler pipe connects to the gas tank. When I fill up the tank gas starts to pour out. while driving and turning left gas also pours out. When the tank is low it does not leak. What is the connection between the filler pipe and the tank. Is this repairable? Thanks in advance.
Pauly

usually a grommet, to allow for a flexible seal .

Yup, there's a rubber grommet there. Pretty inexpensive fix and not too horrible to do. It's been like 4 years since I did mine so I don't really recall the procedure in any detail, but get a Haynes manual for your car and you'll be fine. The rubber piece itself is less than $10.

Why is there a sudden influx of everyone posting in the 4.6 section with cars don't have 4.6's in them? Reading troubles?

This is the 4.6 section. That's how we roll.

"1982-97 Mustang Fuel Filler Neck Grommet "
Thanks,
We all know you are a smart ass but I can say you youngsters love your mustangs and I am with you on this one. Not with you on the jeans around your knees or rap music.
Regards,
Steve and Pauly

I may be younger than you, but I'm not young enough to do all that...... I'm kind of the "old man" around here with all the kids.

Sorry i am a little punchy today. I thought I would ask a simple question and get a simple answer. If someone would have nicely said I was in the wrong forum that would of been ok but to get personal well the gloves are off and I come out swinging. Lets face it Mustangs are for the most part girls cars. Speciously the 4.6L cars. 5.0's get the girls.
