open the cap on the half full tank to listen for a hissing sound with engine off, key on, run on.....the corrugated hose after the fuel pump in the tank will rub a hole into itself and leak

My first thoughts run along with Lou's....leaking fuel line inside the tank. When the tank is full, the pinhole is is submerged in fuel and doesn't draw air bubbles. As the tank empties, the problems arise.
