LEAK!!!! HELP!!!!

ok so i didn't drive my truck today cuz i didn't have time to start it this morning to make it to work on time. so it sat all day and this afternoon i started it and i knew it would be hard to start but it was a little harder then i thought. well it fired up and i noticed bluer smoke than normal and also after it ran for a while i noticed i had fluids leaking under the front and i think it id fuel. it is leaking of what looks like a drain hose but i am not sure

can anyone lighten me on what these might be

thanks

Is the hose along the side of the engine and drains on the crossmember under
the engine? (unless you have attached a hose to it)... If so, those little
o-rings have a tendency to go bad. Do some searching and there are posts
that have the size of them that you can buy. Ford wants a bunch for them.

sounds like your drain tube for the fuel bowl

As already said it is the fuel bowl drain O rings. When the switch was made to ULSD they began leaking like crazy. Ford has made a mint fixing this issue. I can't believe mine have never leaked!!
