Is that Oil or Fuel?

Look above the passenger tire for a 3/8's metal tube against the motor. It is the fuel bowl drain, controlled by the yellow lever to dump water from the bottom, and there are O-Rings that rot and cause it to leak. If that's it you can simply re-ring it!

Tons of oil leaks that it could be. Clean it first, then get up top in the valley at the front, and work your way back looking for where the leak starts.
HPOP, HPOP lines, HPOP plugs, HPO rail plugs, EBPV actuator rod where it exits the turbo pedestal, turbo pedestal orings.
