well treated fuel is light green...dry and clean the valley out.. start the truck and look around the fuel bowl for any leaks.. its probably going to be leaking around the yellow drain valve lever..

If it is leaking where you are talking about, then it might be the o rings on the fuel bowl for the drain valve. I just replaced some on a 7.3 a few weeks ago and it was a pretty quick fix.

no damage just fuel that you are throwing away if it is coming from the drain valve
find the closest dealer and get a new one for like 60$ if not you can get it loose and get some rubber(bicycle tube)or any other materiel in between the valve and the filter housing that will seal the leak until you get home and order o'rings
also check all fuel lines for leaks (they have o'rings and go bad sometimes)
just turn on the car and get on top of motor with a flashlight you'll find the leak

i agree with above post. i would have to say, clean it up, sit under the hood with it running, probably running from fuel filter housing.
