Another Fuel Leak ? Small hard to find Leak

Well I got everything out of the way and cleaned the heck out of the valley, today after driving about 25miles of highway I open the hood and check for leaks. There is a small amount of what looked to be fuel, it was too hot so I waited for it too cool of so I could stick my finger in it to see what it was. I waited a while, ate dinner, when I came back it was gone. So it evaporated somewhat quick, think it was fuel? It was in the the second from the front 'low spot' in the valley, right under the spider. I started it and watched for leaks but it must be a slowww leak because I can't see it! Now I did do a search and found about a hundred things to check, just wanted to see if anyone has seen something similar, or has some idea. Thanks!

Thanks for the tip man, I'll check it out!

The weird thing is sometimes there is a small amount of a fuel puddle and sometimes there's not. Can't pinpoint it, maybe it's only after highway driving.

If it is that then your fuel bowl drain is ope or something is jammed in there holding it open, cuz that hose is the drain line
