Fuel Leak on 93 Camry

Yesterday, our 93 Camry (bought new in 93),now has only 186K miles on it, started leaking fuel right after filling. Our mechanic, pulled the back seat, found stain around the sensor connection, replace the sensor gasket, blew smoke up the tank, found no leak and returned the car to me, after relieving me of only $95 and change. I then took the car to a service station, topped off the tank and it leaked again for about a half hour before stopping.

I then paid $15.00 to get expert opinion as to what is most probably wrong. One “expert” said that it is probably not the evap connection, another “expert” said that it is probably the evap connection. Both “experts” sounded to me like they were blowing smoke up somewhere else besides the tank. They probably are very good at throwing parts at a problem without diagnosing the problem.
