Default Cause of gas leaking?

When I fill up my tank the gas leaks all over the ground, a lot of the gas goes into the tank but a good amount still spills out, does anyone know what's wrong?

I believe you could have a problem with your filler tube (place where gas nozzle attaches when filling up) or your fuel line is split or loose as it enters the tank. With more info. on age, miles, etc. of vehicle, a better diagnosis can be made. Did it just start? Is the vehicle covered under warranty? Has the vehicle been worked on? etc.

Its got to be a hole rusted in the filler tube or something. It wont be terrible to fix.
