1999 E150 when filling up tank gas comes out from top of tank. Does not leak any other time just when filling up. Could this be making the van run rough also. Got a code reading of P0442 could this leak be causing the code and engine run rough

Yes,lose fuel pressure,will make it run bad,check funnel hose going to tank,and seal where fuel pump is,may be bad.
