Fuel leak

Hey guys. I noticed a small puddle of gas on the ground when fueling up the other day, directly under the filler of my 80SC. So, I pulled the wheel off to get a look and saw this-

Where the filler neck sleeve and this long tube that goes nowhere meets, there is a small tear. It looks like the AC fitting wore at it over time (I should pull all of that crap out, as it's pointless in Co) and the gas trickles through there, down the outside of the tube, to the ground. So, does this indicate a crack in the filler neck, inside the boot/sleeve? Trying to get a parts order together.






Thanks!

that is the classic drain hose in case of spilling when overfilling.
sometimes when making the fulltank it doesnt stop quick enough and splashes back.
that spill then flows down in the bowl down that hose.

right away, nothing to worry about.

fixing it: either buy a new rubber bowl (90120159120) and replace it (need complete removal of filler neck first) or use some rubber sealant (black gas-resistant "silicone" to fix the tear where the hose sits (the hose end has a little metal nozzle stuck in it, 91120159300)

edit: check this post:
What did you do to your 911 today?
