SOURCE: brake line behind fuel tank leaking

If the line leaking is plastic then it's not a brake line it's a fuel line. If the truck runs then it is most likely the return fuel line. If you can't get to it without dropping the tank then that's what you'll have to do, but you shouldn't need to remove it completely.
It is best to siphon out as much gas as possible. Before you removing the bolts take 2 pcs. of smooth fence wire or even 12ga. copper wire and make a cradle to support the tank, cut the wire at least 2 ft. longer than what it will take to go from the frame to the drive-shaft.
At a point about 1/3 in from each end of the tank lupe one end of the wire through holes in the frame and twist it a couple of times, then run it under the tank and around the drive shaft and twisting the ends a couple of turns.
After you get all the bolts out of the tank supports if you don't have room to repair the line you can loosen the wires around the drive-shaft and allow the tank to drop down some[this is why you need the wires 2 ft. longer]
After the repairs which will probably be replacing the rubber fuel hose that attaches the line to the tank,[I'd replace both of them] tighten the wires around the drive-shaft and replace the tank bolts. Remember to get all your bolts started before you tighten any,

SOURCE: How do I remove the fuel Tank on a 1996 ford

You need to seperate the tank and pump for tank to be able to be seperated from vechical or you can attempt to remove the fuel lines. and all you need to do is release the tank straps with a 9/16 socket and be sure it is supported and low in gas. To gain access to the fuel pump, it is necessary to remove the fuel tank.

  1. Depressurize the fuel system and remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.
  2. Remove any dirt that has accumulated around the fuel pump attaching flange, to prevent it from entering the tank during service.
  3. Turn the fuel pump locking ring counterclockwise using a locking ring removal tool and remove the locking ring.
  4. Remove the fuel pump and bracket assembly.
  5. Remove the seal gasket and discard it.

To install:
  1. Put a light coating of heavy grease on a new seal ring to hold it in place during assembly. Install it in fuel tank ring groove.

special tool (about $15 at any parts store). It pushes in around the fuel line to release a clip inside , then the fuel line just slides off. Sometimes takes some wiggling and jiggling.

I would suspect that you have a failing fuel pump, the fuel pump pressure is bleeding off due to a faulty check valve, this causes hard starting esp when cold or after sitting. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump assembly.

1996 ford ranger fuel gauge stuck on empty


It's not really easy to tell, you need to test for power and ground at the sending unit at the fuel tank, while someone is watching the fuel gauge inside the vehicle. 90% of the time (especially on Ford's) it's a faulty sending unit in the fuel tank, which is usually sold with the fuel pump...if not, I would replace the pump while I had the tank out anyway just as a precautionary measure.
. the "float' is the part that of the sending unit that registers fuel level and sends that
