Sounds like one of the lines from the fuel pump is leaking. They come attached to the fuel filter. Replace the fuel filter.

When you say "from inside the gas tank" im guessing you mean from on top of the tank? Either way you have a leak and (by the sounds of it) need to drop the tank to replace the bad line with high pressure hose. As long as you can drop the tank or find the part of the line that's leaking w/o dropping it, its an easy fix as long as you have a small pipe cutter, a knife and a regular screw driver and clamps.

When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

Can I syphon has from 2001 dodge caravan from under gas cap

A lot of thieves have tried, but I don't know of many that succeeded. I quit trying to siphon gas from the cap 30 years ago when they started putting springs into the filler hoses just to discourage the practice. And nowadays, anyway, the filler hoses have too many bends in them.

No, I don't think you can, but you could pull off the filler hose from the gas tank fitting and put in a siphon hose right into the tank there.
Another possibility is to shoot 12 volts battery power to the fuel pump (it could be done at the fuel pump relay's position), then disconnect the gas line at a convenient location, like at the fuel filter, and let the pump push all the gas out.

Need a fuel system diagram for 1996 Dodge Caravan 3.3 liter

According to the parts book, the filter comes with the plastic lines attached, and should be in front of the gas tank.
It makes a difference if the van is a long or short wheelbase model.
Some models after 1996 had the filter in the tank.

My 98 dodge caravan has a loss of power and dies when stopping

Filter is mounted directly above the pump module on top of the fuel tank. You may have to drop it down a little bit to change it. Also check the fuel pressure with a good gauge while it's running poorly and see if it's out of spec.
