Exclamation New Diesel OWNER! HELP!

So i just bought my first diesel, 02 f250 ps 7.3 turbo, We towed with it for the first time last night, when we got to our destination we noticed fuel all over the pass side of our truck and the truck we where towing, so we popped the hood and all over the underside of the hood was covered in fuel.. Any suggestions?

thanks
Tiffanie

try running the truck with the hood open. see if you can tell better where its coming from. very little to go on in your post. look on the front of the heads where the fuel lines go in, or on the fuel filter under that powerstroke emblem

Check the fuel lines and banjo
Bolts. Clean Everything before you try to find the leak that way you can clearly tell where it's coming from

04 F-350 XLT FX4 CC LB SRW leveled, SCT w/ innovative tunes, Edge Insight gauges, Str8 pipe, Studs, Bulletproof EGR, valve seats, 6.4 banjo bolts, updated fuel pressure spring

89 F-350 Centurion Lariat 4X4 CC BB STW lifted on 35"s

check bottom of fuel filer... i always figure keep it simple.. there should be a drain on it and it may be the problem. anytime there is a leak in any fluid the fan tends to throw it all over everything.
