The cost to replace the tank will be the cost of a good one from the wreckers and the time to have it fitted.. However check that it is not a loose/ leaking hose first unless you have a hole underneath
You have to check for leaks under the car. Look at the gas tank, usually they leak but wont make it to the ground. If you see that the tank has any wet spots coming from the top around to the bottom, then the leak is at the sending unit. Follow the fuel lines up to the engine, looking for wet spots. Under the hood, find the fuel filter check this for wet spots, then check all the injectors, these can leak at the top or bottom, usually top. Best way to tell is start the car and then check the injectors. If they are leaking it could be a drip or spray.
The fuel pump for this car is electric and is located inside the fuel tank, so you have a leaking fuel line, when the pump is running you have a leak, when the engine is shut off the pressure goes away and no leak.
You may have a small pin hole in one of your hoses that is only leaking under pressure. Of course you may not notce it with the vehicle idling because the pressure is higher as the rpms rise while you are driving.
More importantly though, you need to check your oil dipstick. If the oil looks "milky" you may have water leaking into your oil. This can happen if you have a problem with your "heads" such as a small crack. A cracked head can lead to a blown motor so check it out as you are checking all of your hoses on your cooling systems.
You may have a hole on your tank that at certain car position and how the tank is filled up your gas comes out of that hole. The gas may also coming out of the fixed holes of the tank such us the outlet for the fuel lines. You may want to check on that while inspecting the tank
