Fuel leaking

I just noticed tonight that after I get on the go fast pedal pretty good that when I stop I have some fuel dripping down off the front axle. It doesn't leak at all when driving normal. Since it was allready dark out I really can't get a good look at it tonight. I was just wondering if anyone knew what could cause this leak.

if its leaking down onto the front axle im assuming probably that it is dripping down more right front which would be the drain hose at the bottom right front corner of the engine which is probably because the drain needs to be replaced on the back side of the filter housing, if you look under the truck ,and find that metal line its probably wet

I am having the same problem. Just noticed it today after my wife drove my truck. fuel is leaking out of the drain tube. What do I need to do to fix it?

You know, it's funny how our PSD's seem to be on the same wave length Mine just started doing the almost exact same thing. Noticed it leaking after starting her up to let her get warm before leaving work this evening. Only mine seemed to leak more when it was idling. I just performed the 70,000 mile service on mine this weekend, which included changing the fuel filter. I always drain the fuel bowl when I change the filter. Been leaking, evendently, ever since. Could extreme cold weather help cause these leaks I can and still purchase 500 ppm fuel here in Cottageville, so I don't think it's the fuel causing it.
P.S. Is the drain valves very hard to replace? It didn't look like it would be, but I never have replaced one. Looks like I'm going to though. Thanks.

I just replaced my drain valve o-rings and it solved my leaking issue. A quick $11.00 fix and im not leaking fuel any more. Mine would drim right from the drain tube for the fuel bowl and drip on to the front axle like your rig is doing Gregor. The drain valve repair or replacement is a super easy job, all u need is a Torx bit.
