You have 2 major problems. 1) a big time leak 2) A time bomb. Here's a neat trick that I Learned here. Lay newspaper down and drive the car over it and park. Mark where the wheels are and after a few hours or less in your case, drive off. That way you can see where the fuel leak is coming from. Do it now.
