so i have a leak coming from the area under the gas tank and a strong smell of gas. i know my fuel hose from the tank to the engine is clear because when i blew air into the fuel hose from the engine compartment i heard bubbles coming from the fuel tank. Imma lift the fuel tank today but i just want to know some possibilities of what it can be.

Rotten hose from tank to steel line in tunnel, dried out gasket at the spigot on the tank or rust tank.
