87 300SDL Leaking fuel from undercarriage near trunk.

My 1987 300 SDL seems to be leaking fuel. While driving I heard a loud ping from behind me, near the back seat. Sounded like a tin can getting shot by a BB gun. Then an hour after parking the ground had a large wet spot under the back end. It looks like the fuel is leaking near the rear axle. I ran the engine and that didn't seem to make the leak worse. Still have pressure in the system because when I took off the gas cap it had suction. Any suggestions?
