    Hi philip , we want to help you with your question, but we need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    check the rubber pipes that run the petrol - check the point where it connects to metal pipes or engine parts. Do this while the engine is running and the car is in neutral and park brake is on. You may need to tighten the screws on the clamps at these points

From your statement , the leak is from a hose connected to the tank directly
it could be a problem EVAP system , vent valve , cracked hose or cracked filling hose or air bleed hose back to the filler
Petrol is almost invisible to the eye in small quantities but using talc powder sprayed on any suspect part will show as a dark or pink stain
At this point I suspect the EVAP and canister so run the fault codes first to see if thee is a fault recorded in that area

Put a new in tank fuel pump in 3 days ago in my hyundai accent, but can smell petrol inside the car.

I would double check that your fuel tank is sealed. Fuel fumes can be very bad for your health and can be very dangerous. Sounds as though the gas line may be leaking, or the fuel pump seal is leaking.
