Help with a fuel leak

Noticed a fuel leak last night on my 96 PS, I'm not sure of the part name it is coming from, it is near the FPR, looks like a sending unit ( round ) with a single wire plugged to the end. Thanks for any help!!

Is there fuel all down in the valley?

What I would do to be sure is make sure your engine is clean and clean up all the fuel and oil. Then hope up in there with a flash light and get someone to start the truck and look a little closer. Many times when the lift pumps go out on these trucks it will leak from the weep holes in the pump...

Might try to get a picture to
