The most common fuel tank leaks are the tank, a hose leading to the tank or the seal around the sending unit.

I've actually never seen a sending unit leak. That'* good news because it'* the most expensive part.

Are the edges of the tank overly rusty? (The most common is the tank)

My guess would be a hose or tube on top of the tank worn through of pinched because you said the whole top of the tank cover in gas.
