Check up around the fuel bowl. Mine was leaking right there from the fuel bowl drain valve.

Mine started doing the same thing last winter... ended up being the fuel bowl drain valve O-Ring... Changed it out and it hasn't leaked since...
If you're in a pinch you could always flip the old o-ring over... it'll reseal and hold ya over for a little while or long depending on how lucky you get...

The valve is actually on the back side of the fuel bowl, can be a PITA to get the screws out and back in... but the above links will help alot. That's what I used when I replaced my O-rings...

The drain valve is on the back of the fuel bowl with the yellow handle looking thing. The o rings were my problem but I took it off and couldnt find any to go back on so I just put it back together and hasnt leaked a drop since and thats been about a year.

I replaced the orings and still have a drip from the valve. I am afraid to get the T-20 screws to tight. I am questioning if they are too loose though.
