Do I have a problem? diesel drip from tube!

So I was taking a look at what all there was for doing an EBPS and tube cleaning on my '03 SuperDuty and when I crawled under the truck to find the other end of the EBPS tube I saw another tube that ran along side it but was open ended pointing down. There was a driplet on it and after collecting on my finger I determine it is diesel. I think it traces back to the fuel bowl on the top side. Am I correct? Also, I just had the fuel filter changed yesterday. Is this from some sort of prime that was performed, is it normal or do I have a problem. It looks as if a bracket has been receiving some diesel from this tube in the past.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

No that should just be the drain for when you open the valve on the back of the fuel bowl... And the change of the filter explains the drip on it. Your all good!

If it continues to drop the drain valve might be bad. They aren't that hard to replace just kinda a tight area to work in. They sell o-ring kits to rebuild it and I have heard of people on here having good success with that. You can greatly extend the life of that valve by just flipping it open and closed every few fill ups.

the o-ring kit is about $8, and take about 20 minutes to change... it is tight working on it, but my small fingers fit in there just fine, I've changed a few of them for myself and friends... small torx bit and a tiny ratchet makes it easy.

Dieselorings has the better flourosilicone o-rings for $6 or so. They work great.

Its normal after a filter change. You drain the fuel bowl and the fule runs down out of that tube. check it in a week and there shouldn't be a drip. If there is then refer to above solutions^^
