Question Fuel Leak

Today my dad noticed a tail of oil on the ground in the garage. I crawled under it and found that it wasn't oil, it was fuel. At least i think it was fuel it had a bluish green tint to it, and it didn't taste like coolant. It's coming down the back side of the engine on the passenger side, and is dripping off the bellhousing. The tranny pan has a greasy film to and and tranny crossmember is the same way. Where could this leak be coming from, i can't seem to find it at all. Please Help!

And i also noticed my Truck is starting to do the same thing, well it's not leaking as bad but the tranny is starting to get that same greasy film to it also. We both a 7.3, his is a 02 mine is a 03

Ok, well i'll check that tomorrow. I do know the valley on my truck has some oil in it, but that's from when my HPOP was leaking. On my dad's truck his valley is dry, just some oil residue from the intake tubes. So hopefully it's that and nothing extremely terrible.
