1. Fuel filter light on yesterday. Very dim.

3. This morning had to crank it three times for it to start. Took a good bit. After that fires right up when warm.
4. Drive 50 miles on turnpike stopped to get coffee and came outside in parking lot and huge fuel puddle. And some steam or smoke under hood. Not major steam or smoke though.
5. Fuel was dripping like a s.o.b. from the top of the engine.
6. Drive it 2 miles to work. Couldn't even notice it. No power loss. No warning lights.
7. Parked it it vacant parking lot. Fuel leaking down from top back of the engine.
8. I just realized I screwed up and made an idiot mistake. I didn't pull the rubber seal/gasket off the old fuel filter. The new one didn't come with one and I put it on. Idiot move I know.

Haha that's my question. Do u think its the gasket? Would that cause a fuel leak. And thanks for the offer. Not asking someone to come supply one. Advanced across the street. Thanks for quick reply. Think I can make it home? If I put fuel in obviously.

I would think that would be your issue for sure

and why didn't the new one come with one ?

anyway I would get a new filter and use the gasket for this one and when you change again don't throw it away LOL

Thanks man. As you can tell I'm really panicked by this. Just I'm stranded. Also if you work in nice dress clothes and an office building sometimes embarrassing when your old diesel is leaking fuel all over the earth.
