Fuel leak. Please help!

I have a 2002 f-250 7.3. I discovered a fuel leak, but don't know where it is coming from. I have searched everywhere above and below the motor, and can't pinpoint the source.
Here are the symptoms:
Seems to leak when pulling up larger hills or when I get on it hard to pass, etc.
No loss of power
Small hills and regular driving no problems
Fuel is all over the passenger side wheel well, and even sprays down the passenger side of the truck
Occasional small puddles uner the truck when parked overnight

Can't figure it out. Please help!!!

Check your fuel/water separator valve the drain is right down by the passenger wheel well. Could be getting fuel blown out from the wheel while going down the road, would explain on the side of the truck. Other than that I am at a loss.
