Fuel tank filler line leaking?

I think I am leaking fuel from the filler line between the filler line and the actual gas tank. I think there is a piece of rubber fuel line that connects the two. Has anyone had this happen before? Where can I get a replacement hose? I cant seem to find one on autozone's website.

typically, it's the vent line that breaks. forgot what size it was, but I just got generic fuel hose of x diameter, and shoved it on there (the one i got was a smidge too small, and shoving was literal. since I had cut the hose for length already, I just fought it on, and no more leaks don't forget hose clamps.).

I had a similar problem but it was the filler neck itself..It rusted out at the bend (small pinhole)...I took it out and had someone braze it for me since I couldnt find one anywhere...good luck

I had a leaking hose that was the approximate size of heater hose and only about 3 or 4 inches long. Have a full tank of gas and the gas cap off when you look for the leak but have a empty tank when you start taking things apart.

the vent hose is about a foot long, I think it is 5/8 or 3/8 fuel hose. Go to napa and get it. the regular parts stores dont carry it. I recently replaced mine like 3 months ago and had to do the job twice, because I got the wrong size hose from autozone!
