Default Fuel tank leak?

I've had a code P0449 set for some time now (Canister Vent Solenoid), which supposedly is somewhere on or near the fuel tank. Well today I thought I would get underneath the Outlook and see if I could find the Canister Vent Solenoid, since I haven't had much luck trying to locate any info on.
As soon as I got underneath I smelled gas. Hadn't even driven it today. I see a wet spot on the driveway and can see it's leaking from the gas tank, near the front of the vehicle. Took a few photos (attached). Gas tank was about 7/8 full when this is happening. It was leaking very slow at that point. Later in the day we drove it for a 10 mile trip, and after parking again I looked under and the gas was really dripping fast. Seems like it's coming from the topside of the tank and then dripping down. Any ideas?
