It is the evap cannister and it's made out of plastic and this commonly cracks. I think if you replace this you won't be leaking anymore. Inspect the hoses going to it as well.

That canister is for vapor only .It should never have fuel coming from it. Is the check engine light on ? If so scan the OBD 2 for any stored codes.
