Fuel Pump

I have a 1986 Dodge Ram pickup truck and when I park on a hill with the front of the truck pointing downhill gas comes out at the fuel pump. What causes this? Do I need a new fuel pump?

yes you need a new fuel pump it is also probably leaking while driving the vehicle.
there is weep holes on most mechanical pumps that will leak gas out when the diaghram gets ruptured, if you start the engine you may see fuel squirting out of the holes if not at idle increase the rpm to about 3000 and it is usually more evident. probably just due to gravity that it is noticable when you park down hill.
