fuel leak after fill up?

So I filled up yesterday. I always put the gas nozzle on the slowest setting as I get close to full to let more fuel go in, but I do not top off! Never had a problem before. Went to gym, and could smell a little fuel in trunk when I got my gym bag. Drove home, 3 miles or so after gym. Got up this morning and garage stunk like gas. Small puddle under car near back wheels, but I could see it started close to filler neck area and migrated to center of car. Did I over fill and flood the charcoal canister possibly, and would that cause a leak, or maybe just the overflow tube filled up and is partially blocked, so fuel is coming out slowly? No codes.

What you describe is bad news.

Have the vehicle put on a flatbed [do not start it,] and have a dealer check the fuel system now.
