Default Gas leak

Hello everyone idk if I am posting this in the right section or not but here it goes I have a 1990 Mazda Miata with a 1.8 swap. I have been having a gas leak over my exhaust I pulled the top couver behind the seats and felt around no gas leak there. I crawled under the car and can see it running down the front of the gas tank onto the exhaust but can't find where it's coming from. Any help would be appreciated

You should fix the gas leak. Gas comes from the gas tank. You're welcome.

Sounds like the seam between the tank halves is leaking. Im guessing you need a new tank.
