fuel bowl leaking now and now im on vacation

So a week and no leaks and all the sudden tonight it starts to leak. 2 days into my vacation 6 hours from home.

Its dark now and all I have is my cell light is all have. I can see it looks like a steady drip from under the plug on the back of the bowl. The bowl heater i believe. 2 questions and hopefully in the morning i can do something. There is a napa close by.

1 is this plug piece philips or torx? I remember taking it off. I dont have the directions right now.

2 what are the odds the o ring busted? Hopefully I can snug up the screws and be good...


thanks

So we were out at a restaraunt. I literally watched it leak. Steady. Like I was concerned it would fill the entire valley and spill over on the way to the cabin and driving up the mountain it was dripping so fast.. I cleaned it with some papertowels and drove straight here. Get out when I got back to clean it out again with more papertowels and try and see if they were torx or philips. No leak. Small puddle from what I watched at the restaurant. Im 100 percent sure it was coming from the plug housing. I watched it drip. I could see it clear as day hit the puddle. the smell was bad in the cab. Now nothing.... im seriously going to go nuts with this erratic leaking....

Are you talking about the fuel bowl drain valve leaking?? That uses torque head wrench to get off, if it's something else leaking I'd need to go look at my truck to see what your talking about.
