Suspect the fuel pump relay. Normally the fuel pump relay operates during starting and when turning off the engine. If it is stuck, the pump could continue to run. A full explanation of how the relay works and how to check it is quite long. I suggest you check the net for info on how a fuel pump relay works and conduct the electrical test. It is straight forward. Basically, if the relay is sending power to the pump with the engine off, it is defective.
