2. A loose fitting, a broken hose, a bad gasket. Maybe easy to find and fix.
I had a leaking fuel filler hose once that did EXACTLY what you are seeing - about a liter of gas in the bilge after filling. I finally say it leaking into the console after a fill and a new hose fixed the problem. However, it could be ANYWHERE on the fuel system, but unlikely to be in the engine fuel line if the engine is running OK.
