I would say tank. If the filler neck was leaking, it would be doing it the entire time you fill up. Get it fixed ASAP- that can be a serious fire hazard.

your best bet is to replace the fuel filler neck. the entire fuel system is a calibrated emissions system, meaning any changes to the specific setup may set a check engine light. you should be able to purchase a new fuel filler tube at your local dealer, not sure if parts stores carry those kind of parts. but you can try them too.

Good news, no the tank doesn't have to come down. However, there needs to be less than 3/4 tank. Jack it up and set on a jack stand, remove the wheel, four screws housing to pipe, filler pipe sensing hose from filler pipe, screw retaining the cap, four retaining screws from filler pipe, screw from filler pipe retainer, slide into the tank until it can be rotated and pulled out through the fender. lube the tank grommet with clean oil and reverse the removal for install.

Did you check the vent tube alongside the filler neck? If it is pinched or blocked with something, just what you describe will happen. The air in the tank needs some way to escape to make room for the gas, and it should be through the vent tube. If it's bent, pinched, blocked, you will have a hard time pumping gas in.
