SOURCE: fuel tank leaking how to
I don't think you will have any luck sealing this from the outside.
Removing the tank (preferably empty), filling it with water and soldering all of the seams (if metal) or replacing it if of plastic.
This could be sloppy manufacturing showing up late, stress from being slammed underneath (is there signs of dents or scrapes?) or if metal, it might be rusting through which is pretty much a death sentence for it.
Pouring some (a cup or so) methanol, pure ethanol or a commercial product intended for that use, into your tank now and then will cause condensation to bond to the gasoline where it will pass though the system and out.

You need a funnel to add trans fluid to the dipstick tube where u check the trans fluid level. Let me know if u need more help, Add fluid w/ engine running, shift car thru all gears to circulate fluid. Don't overfill, it's bad for the trans.

make sure that the little hose is clear of any restrictions and you can blow through it this will be the vent tube for the fuel tank. there is also a check ball that may be lodged in the tank and it is located in the tank right where the fill tube connects to the tank. you should be able to disconnect the tube and move it around with your finger. thanks and keep me updated or if you run into a problem

Check to make sure its not a leak. If its a leak, there is a product at Most Auto part stores that will stop a leak even when its leaking gas. If this doesnt work, you would have to remove the tank for repair or replacement.
