Leaking Fuel on 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

Under the car, just forward of the fuel tank, on the passenger side, it appears to be the fuel pump? There is a plastic shelf under the pump and it is leaking gas when I drive - it does not leak when the key is off. Oh, the year is 1989, but the drop down only goes back to 1990. Thank you,

it could either be the fuel pump, the fuel filter or one of the hoses. all of these are together in this one location. once the car is raised on a lift you can see what's leaking.

Its actually a 1986,it idles really fast. What can possibly be the cause of this?
The car runs good and strong but will not stay running unless the gas peddle is gently held its like it needs to be idle up i can hold the air intake flap down 1/4 inch and it will idle just find...
