Sounds like the same thing mine is doing, except I dont have any oil leaking. Check it out and see what you think.

How did the engine look underneath?
Any fuel dripping from fuel drain line?
Do HPOP lines look dry?

I am having the same issue. 99 late model every moring I have a puddle of fuel under my truck. It comes from the over flow line right by the belts. I think it is in the enging vally but can't see anything leaking?

More then likely the fuel bowl drain is leaking. Replace the O rings.

ok, I went out and ran it and looked all around and didn't see anything leaking. I is coming out of the metal hose that comes off the bottom of the fuel bowl. I turned the yellow lever and heard a pffst sound like air release, fuel started pooring out of the metal hose. I turned it back off and now nothing. So could air pressure could have been causing it? I did just change my fuel filter a week ago and now all of the sudden this starts happening. I have changed many of them on my old 97 7.3 never had that happen.
