I have spilling on the ground while fueling. Filler neck wasn't sitting right, so it was adjusted to fit in properly. I attempted putting gas in once again, and now instead of it dripping out, it's spraying out. Was thinking fuel tank epoxy to seal the filler neck to other piece..will that work?

    Seeing that you are from NE, pinholes in the fuel filler neck are a common problem. My best advice is to replace it with OEM part. Its a fairly easy repair with basic tools and jack/stands. The reason for corrosion on older Imprezas is the plastic dirt shield that does exactly the opposite - keeps dirt, sand, salt in direct contact with the filler neck.
    Good luck
