most likely coming from the water separator drain on the back of the filter housing and running down the valley and between motor and tranny. they are known to leak and you can get an oring kit and rebuild them fairly easy. that's where i would check first.

also check the fuel line that runs on the side of the head on the inside of the block. cake with an e-series. the bolt hold down wears a hole in it
