Diesel Everywhere!!!

Need some help here brothers!
I'm cruisin back to town from the big city. Car passed me on the double lane and I swear I see smoke coming from my back end. Then a cop is hiding out in the ditch and starts driving my way and follows pretty close until we hit city limits......then seriously, turns into the donut shop!
So I get a red light and now I notice the smoke pukin out of the hood and from under my truck. I quickly pulled over and shut her down, popped the hood and smell Diesel. Everything is wet! my tailgate is soaked, everything under the truck is dripping and the smoke just keeps on coming out of the engine compartment.
What do you think guys.....must have blown a fuel line to the rail?
How common is this and what can I do so it never happens again. I'd imagine diesel on a hot turbo would equal fire! I think I got lucky.
How much $$$$ am i looking at here.

I'm thinking the valve for the fuel bowl cracked.

aahhhh......I didn't think of that. I wish I had a flashlight so i could've look around, but that little light on the inside of the hood doesn't really cut it.
I had it towed to the diesel mechanic in town and I'll phone him first thing in the a.m.
I hope it's a simple and cheap fix!

I had a fuel line crack that fed the passenger side. With all that pressure in those lines when something fails the fuel is gonna come out and a lot of it. Try to get everything in the engine compartment cleaned up real good and then take a look around. Then if you havent found anything I would drain the fuel bowl and then turn the key over and let the fuel bowl flood with fuel and see if you can find your leak

If it is leaking that bad it shouldn't be hard to find. As far as fixing, shouldn't be that expensive, especially if you do it yourself ( always recommended).
Good luck

When my drain o-rings got bad mine did the exact same thing. Everything you describe is EXACTLY what happened to mine so i think and hope that that is your only problem.

The fuel drain valve is a very common problem and easy to fix. Good luck!
