Hi there,
If he says the fuel pressure is higher than expected, then yes the internal regulator (part of the pump assembly) is faulty.
The leak when full could be the filler neck hose, or even the neck of the tank, could be simple fix, could need a new tank.
Either way, the rear tub has to come off again.
He'll learn you don't do things by halves on a job like this.
Hope this helps.

Hi there,
I've told you what I have seen before with this style of tank that we have many cars.
I've told you nothing new? I've told you the rear tub has to come off again to ascertain what the leak is.
You can't tell me what it is, and you are with the car.
I have a chance of knowing what it is, and I'm not with the car.
