Q: Fuel Tank Repairs on 1999 Ford Contour

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I currently own 1999 Ford Contour LX. And I had my fuel pump put on over two years ago. But the repair guy tighten by hand and not by the machine. When I fill up on gas my car smells just like gas. I think I have a leak either on fuel pump or somewhere there is something going on with my car. I hope someone will be able to assist me with this current problem.

The o-ring at the top of the tank where the pump mounts can leak - but the fuel filler neck grommet to the tank can also leak. Either way, the tank will have to be accessed...couple hours labor and minimal in parts.
So I would need to change the oring around the top of my gas tank? I can only wonder how much that cost?

Thank you for answering my question....
