I also seem to have a fuel leak that I cannot find. I have noticed over the last couple of months if I let my truck idle for any period of time there is a strong smell of diesel. The last couple of weeks I have started noticing it just sitting at a red light. I cannot see any leaks and replaced the fuel filter a couple of weeks ago in case it was leaking there. Are there any known problems spots I can look or any tricks that can help me locate the leak? I have also noticed my MPG’s have dropped about 4 MPG. Thank you in advanced for any help.

Check the seal on the fuel filter. Bad seal or wrong lid.
