I wouldn't think you would HAVE to replace the gasket but it's RECOMMENDED that you do. Have you been able to pinpoint where the leak is exactly? If you can't pinpoint it take her back apart and replace the gaskets to see if that helps.....after that it's time to get a 2nd set of eyes to help diagnose

unless the paint shop poked a hole in your tank you need a new gasket or installed the gasket wrong.

You do not have to replace that gasket you just have to make sure that the steel wool looking stuff is in the right place. Im 99% sure if you take it all apart and look very close you will see something that is out of place. When installing the fuel pump into the take make sure not to over tighten the nuts they tend to break off very easy. Then you will have to buy a whole new gas tank.
