For the life of me I have no ideas how anyone would have gotten fuel over there. Unless the previous owner figured it would filter better that way. For now I would replace it and keep a close eye on it.

Did you buy if private party or off of a used car/truck lot?

Go with a DIY intake, better filtration and flow than the stocker. As far as the fuel goes, it's likely someone just spilled it or handled the air filter when they were messing around with the fuel filter.

That is an option, and is really easy to do on a superduty.

My personal experience with getting fuel every where happened the last time I change the filter. I pinched the gasket and didn't know it. Turn the key on and HOLY GARDEN HOSE of fuel everywhere! I would venture to guess that something like that happened.

Here is the link for the air filter.
