How to Replace Fuel Pump 2002 Honda CRV

Honda CR-V

Filled gas tank to top. Discovered leaking a lot. Opened access under seat, found 1 inch of gas surrounding the ring to access the fuel pump, tightened but still leaks until about 3/4 in tank. Also this is setting check engine codes. Any ideas?
Thanks, Dirkman

I would think the answer is obvious but here goes anyway, Fix the leak. Most likely replacing the leaking o-ring gasket at the fuel pump seal will take care of the fuel leak and the EVAP leak that is turning your check engine light on. Might not be a bad idea to go ahead and replace the fuel pump at the same time since it will need to be removed in order to replace the gasket seal.
