Fuel leak, please help!!!

I was out and about today and when I walked up to my truck there was a decent sized puddle underneath of the front differential. I crawled underneath and wiped my finger on the bottom of the front diff and smelled diesel. After getting the truck home I followed the lines up and it seemed as though fuel was coming possibly from a fuel line on the front of the motor, drivers side where the egr cooler was previously (relative area) After pulling the drivers side front fender out, pulling the abs coupler off I was able to get a better look, it seemed as though fuel was coming out of the head... Or maybe fuel was dripping so fast from another point that it seemed as though it was. Looking from the top of the motor there was no sign of fuel, or any wet soruce what so ever. I was hoping someone would be able to give me some insite. I did just get studded, and egr removed with wastegate, hoping that this wasn't an issue do to that. Any help I would greatly appreciate.

I have had my F250 for a month. It has 118,000 mi and on a recent trip to MT, I started leaking diesel. Drained 6 gallons getting to Whitefish (50 miles). Not knowing a thing about diesel engines, I took it to the dealer. The high pressure hose was leaking. It was spewing out after turning off the engine but would eventually drip to a stop until I started it again. $2,000 later, I have a new hose and an oil change.
