Clio petrol tank

Hi all, every now and then i have a problem with the sender unit which is accessable by lifting the rear seat up and removing the black inspection cover.
it happens if i fill my tank all the way. what happens is after i tank up and drive home, the next time i return to my car the petrol has been gushing out from the sender unit on the top of the tank.
i loose a 1/4 tank then it settles down.
i dont know what is wrong and Renault Liverpool were not helpfull over the phone.
the only thing i can do if i can find the fault is not to fill up to the top anymore as it does not seem to happen then.
the cost of fuel is high and i can afford to loose this amount.
any help would be great thanks.
