I had this issue with my espace, apparently the plastic tank had become mishapen for no clear reason and the seal round the fuel sender unit failed to seal.
One new fuel tank, sender unit and 500 later the issue was cured.
Poor design I guess.

Fual leakage Espace 2.0RTX 2000

Hi my espace was leaking fual took it to the garage for a service, after removing the tank 4 times they found the pump "which is on top of the tank" had a hair line crack got a new pump fitted cost about 200 including the pump, think they felt sorry for me, this may be a common fault on Espace's. Hope this helps.
