Hole in fuel tank?

Whenever I fill my tank pretty close to the top, it will spill fuel from what looks like the fill tube connecting to the tank. Is this a fail safe for overfilling or is there a hole that I need to take care of? It doesn't leak at all when filling

It never should leak, only out the fuel fill opening if too full.

Think someone has had the tank out and torn/punctured a hose or left a clamp loose?

I fill mine until I can see fuel in the neck and never lose a drop.

Why would you get a new tank right away without checking the lines?

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

I am taking the bed off this week to see if there is a hole in the line or actual tank

In my opinion the tank comes out quicker than the bed comes off. Run it low on fuel (light on) and a buddy and a floor jack will make short work of it. I would also suggest looking very carefully with a flashlight before you take it apart, a diesel leak should have made an oily mess that would be easy to ID.
