Why wont fuel go into tank?

Really sounds like someone or something has plugged up your fill pipe. Is there any chance someone has done this?
For a fix, if you will look under the car, you will see a place where the metal fill pipe meets the metal extension coming up from the gas tank. Between them is a rubber hose with a metal clamp on each end. You could loosen those clamps and remove the rubber pipe, and then see if something is plugging that, and where. The gas tank is removable, but both that and the rubber hose will be a "big job'.
God bless your efforts.

Gas leak

Being a 93 model, I would suggest inspecting your fuel tank, rubber hoses in or near the tank, all fuel lines, look for a hole in tank as well. Rubber hoses eventually dry rot, causing leaks. And your tank can and will rust through eventually. This is a VERY dangerous situation as any little spark can cause a fire.

Engine light on smell fuel gas dripping under fuel tank

Engine light on can be a lot of different things. But first, fid the gas leak! The fuel line is a combination of steel and in some places rubber lines. It is likely that the leak is in the rubber part of the line. The tank is usually protected under the vehicle by a steel plate that first must be removed on Jeeps. I don't know what part of the car the gas is leaking from, but if it near the tank at the back, its is probably where the line comes from the tank or where the filler pipe enters the tank. You will just have to get under the vehicle with a flashlight and look to see exactly where the gas is coming from. You may have to remove the bolts holding the tank cover on, it is heavy, so you might want to have a floor jack under it with a 2 by 2 foot piece of plywood between the steel plate and the jack. That way you can lower it to the ground safely. Do the same thing with the tank. You will have to disconnect the fuel filler hose before you can let the tank down. There is a clamp at the tank that hold it on. Look for leaks and replace the hose that is leaking. This is a critical issue. Gas and hot exhaust pipes can set this off into an inferno. Now back to the engine light on. A gas leak can cause the light on because it may show up as an evaporative system leak. It's like leaving the gas cap off. If you want a better idea of why the light is on, drop by an Autozone or Advance auto store and they will usually hook it up to their code scanner for free. Without the code readout you have to just guess at the cause for the light.

Leaky fuel fill pipe

Is it rusted and leaking,only when filling at gas pump? Check where leak is. eg rubber hose or pipe. You can remove and solder pin holes. Kind of old to look for a new part.

Fuel leaks from filler pipe to gas tank

You don't need to replace the gas tank, the filler pipe is connected to a rubber hose which connects to the tank with clamps at each end.

Sounds like you are rusted out. Even the factory parts are not that expensive and they are properly bent. Check the dealer.
If substituting aftermarket piping you want to either replace the bad section with a splice or the whole piece. Notice the end connections and where you will attach the replacements.
Notice the routing of the gas line away from hot exhaust parts and areas a lift jack will crush your line. Notice what moves close to the fuel line to allow for travel.

You may be able to splice a piece of rubber fuel line into a metal line with a few clamps.

I have seen everything you will need at Autozone and Oreillys and similar stores with the exception of Factory parts.

Gas line is leaking very close to tank. The leak is at the joint where the metal pipe coming from tank meets a rubber hose that runs to filter. It seems to be leaking right at this joint which seems to...

You want to be very careful not to make any sparks while working on this. The obvious is smoking, banging metal tools around, etc. keep cell phones AWAY from the area. Pick up some rubber fuel line from the parts store. Be prepared for some gas leakage, have a plastic pan under the leak. Disconnect the line at the tank, have a piece of new hose ready to push on over the line to as close to the tank as you can, have the end away from the tank plugged up temporarily with a pencil or something that fits snug in it, then remove the rubber hose on the filter, and connect new line from tank to filter, check for leaks, hopefully it is the rubber line you replaced, or the end of the metal line, so the new hose will hopefully cover the corroded leaking area. Clamp and Dry off area and see if you can spot any leaks.
