All i can say is lucky:hehe but seriously...it could be a slow fuel bowl leak going into the valley so you may not necessarily see the leak yet. then the fumes are being sucked into the cab air intake by the windshield wipers. Only a guess but a leak i believe is the culprit just maybe a small one

I got up on top of the engine and I can smell the diesel fuel smell towards the back. Can not see any fittings wet at all. But I cant see them all. Nothing underneath either. Must be small a small one. Taking it to dealer tomorrow.

I have the smell too, but mine seems to only appear during regen. Took to the dealer and they didn't find anything. Big surprise. If they find the culprit, please post it. I'm curious.

If your not deleted. Chances are your truck is regening a whole lot. Trying adding some Cetane (Diesel Klean) or similiar product.

There is a line up at the rear top of the motor that has a 1/4" metal line going to a compression fitting that comes loose, hooks up to an elbow. It happen a lot with the 2011's. If you get under the truck and look at the rear of the motor up by the turbo on the passenger side of the trans. You can see it, it should look a little grimy if its leaking. With a long arm and a 5/8" open wrench (I think) you can fix it.

Heres a TSB on it. But there are cases of this after the date shown.
TSB 11-6-22 dated June 27, 2011
It is for 2011 SD's w/ 6.7 built on or prior to 2/16/11; may exhibit an exhaust leak or odor from the exhaust pressure sensor tube-to-exhaust pipe connection.
