Hi and welcome to the forum from Houston, TX!
Any gas leak - you should better worry! :smile:
Perhaps the rubber seal got loose or deteriorated. It's not easy to get to but worth inspecting. Perhaps a picture of the area where it's leaking will help.

If it's still leaking with only half a tank of fuel, then don't blame that on your dad for overfilling it. It's got to be something else, most likely a leak from the fuel pump area which is by that right rear tire.
