Am I gonna catch fire?!

Now that I have your attention...

Is this a fuel line that is dangling on my (new to me) truck?! It is directly under the turbo and the valley has a good amount of fuel in/on it.

Already fixed the fuel filter leak.. P/o was a genius.

Wouldn't that be an oil leak? This is straight fuel.

Could be a number of things. Check to make sure the banjo bolt on the back of the pump is 100% tight. Other things to check... fuel drain valve orings and all rubber hoses going to/from the fuel bowl.
