I'd confirm the source of the leak before making a decision.
The fact that it leaks for 3 minutes after you shut off the
car would indicate it's leaking from a pressurized source.
The fuel lines are pressurized, not the tank.  After running
for a while, most tanks have a vacuum (you can hear the hiss
when you remove the gas cap).  It may even be a leak at the
fuel pump, making it seem like it's the tank.
