you may need to replace the mechanical fuel pump, mine leaked in the same spot in that back side valley. if you do have to replace it make sure to use a lot of lube on that o ring on the foot of that pump they a re easy to cut and if you do cut it you will have a oil leak.

yes that is the fuel pump if it is leaking out where the arrow is pointing i would be willing to bet money you need to replace that fuel pump. any parts stores should have them for around 100.00 to 150 ish i think. I get my stuff a cost so im not sure about retail price, hope that helps!
