its common. dieselorings sells new orings for like 6 bucks.
just make sure its leaking from their, the fuel drain valve is on the back of the bowl.

if its not leaking from the drain valve he sells a kit for the other orings and such.

If it's not the orings, the WIF sensor will also leak. Just remove it and put in a pipe plug.

Usually it is the Fuel Restriction Sensor that is the leaker (on the fuel pressure regulator on 96-97's and on the back of the fuel bowl near the bottom on 94-95's) that you can use a 1/8 NPT plug. The fuel heater feedthrough is sealed with an o-ring and that is held down by the WIF sensor (also o-ringed IIRC). Note that fuel bowls have also simply rotted out on the bottom on some trucks. Cheers!
