Diesel leak!!!

Hey Folks,

Been awhile since I've posted. I have a problem. I've found a leak from somewhere around my throttle area. It's just a drip, but I can't seem to pinpoint the origin. Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be. I hope it's a simple fix, but I'm worried. I still get about 10 mpg, but leaking fuel is never a good thing. HELP!!!

You're going to have to clean everything off and then pinpoint exactly where it's leaking. Could be an o-ring, could be a line, could be the pump. Can't really help with such few details.

On our later Cummins we developed leaks on the engine mounted filter can.
The water drain valve was leaking, then all the o-rings leaked. (2 under the drain valve and the water in fuel sensor itself) Then under a block off plate for the optional heater. Replaced all the leakers, cheap and easy fix......Once I located the leaks that is.
