Fuel Pouring out bad running

(1990 Dodge Caravan)
in Glen Flora, WI on May 24, 2010
I drive this vehical and it acts like it loses power and surges. When I stop fuel is released from the tank over flow line comiming from the top of the tank. I mean it gushes all over the ground from a line coming out the drivers side rear all over my Emergency Brake cable box.
It is some type of pressure relief line from the tank.
I have no idea what the problem is? A fuel pressure regulator? Or other?

This needs to be towed to a shop where a mechanic can put it up on a hoist to look and see what is leaking. Don't drive it, tow it.

Assuming ur not overfilling tank by not stoppin when pump does, ur tank is not releasing its pressure im guessing through a one way valve or ur emission system is not venting ur fumes into charcoal canister properly,but computer should show code or that the solenoid isnt working.
