Question about Ford Escort
You probably have a leak in the fill tube that goes from the gas cap nozzle (where you fill the gas) down to the tank. If you get under the car, or look up through the wheel well (you might have to remove the liner in the well), you should be able to see the fill tube. If it's old, cracked, worn, broken, or has a hole in it, that'd do it for sure. That's my bet anyhow - either a leaking tube due to damage/rust, or if it's a two-piece design, a clamp that has failed and isn't sealing the two halves together.
