problem #2

Contour 4-cyl

I have only had the vehicle since February 14th this year. I can not fill my gas tank all the way full. It has been leaking gas every time I do. I have tried several times at different stores when I gas up my car to see if it was because I had been parked on an incline. It does not matter if I am on level ground it still leaves a puddle under my car. It is worse if I park on anything but level ground. Please let me know if there is anyway to fix the problem.
