Know someone that just had the same prob. Ended up being cracked heads. Hope that's not the prob you have here

Then, use a mixture of hydrogen peroxide, lighter fluid, and whipped mayonnaise (1/3-1/3-1/3) to establish the trace sulfur content, density, and water separation characteristics (the instructions are on the back of most containers of mayonnaise – not the generic crap!). You should also estimate the Rancimat storage stability and interfacial tension – although that's not as easy. Get some rice vinegar for that.

I HAVE THAT MAYO! Can you specify lighter fluid? Zippo, Generic BBQ lighter fluid, Kingsford brand, white camp gas?

Any lighter fluid will do, but only brown bottle hydrogen peroxide. The white bottle kind would be bad.

Very bad.

I'm literally too busy right now to take the time to diagnose the issue myself, and as always turned to the OG's on the ORG for help.

I don't think the first question I asked was sarcasm, just a plain old how do you know it's diesel, since you didn't specify you smelled that particular wet spot. A smart *** reply deserves another. As far as the grammar police goes, you got me there chief. Hope that find lets you sleep easy. Seriously, why do people turn this into a pissing contest, when I never even took a piss?!? Never called you out, but more power to ya

Are you serious? Since I take care of my vehicles, and it doesn't leak oil or coolant and I've been smelling diesel the powers of deductive reasoning automatically points to the wet spot as fuel since oil and coolant have their own distinct smells.......maybe you haven't gotten that far in your powerstroke textbook yet....it's ok bro, stick around you'll learn

The use of ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuels has raised corrosion concerns in the engine manufacturing, fuel storage and regulatory communities because ULSD is thought to be more corrosive than diesel fuels containing higher amounts of sulfur. Microbiologically induced stress corrosion cracking (MIC) is also a potential problem in all fuel systems, since fuel systems provide a readily available food source to microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi. Your best bet is to investigate the compositional effects that lead to stress corrosion cracking.

Your first step is to get a sample of the fluid. Wiping it up with your finger is fine. Transfer it to a piece of toilet paper quickly, though. Then, use a mixture of hydrogen peroxide, lighter fluid, and whipped mayonnaise (1/3-1/3-1/3) to establish the trace sulfur content, density, and water separation characteristics (the instructions are on the back of most containers of mayonnaise – not the generic crap!). You should also estimate the Rancimat storage stability and interfacial tension – although that's not as easy. Get some rice vinegar for that.

If you can get a second sample and subject it to some temperature cycling (in your microwave), you could then assess the mass loss according to ASTM D1654. Depending on the water content of the mixture, electrochemical impedance of direct corrosion rate and electrochemical potential can be measured. Accelerated exposure tests according to NACE TM0172-2001 can also be performed. This should indicate the relative corrosiveness of the fuel.

Next – to assess the physical condition of the extruded diesel transport material – it'd be really good if you could get your hands on a scanning electron microscope. Your local university should have one. If not, auger electron spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy or ion chromatography would do a fine job of identifying the type and extent of corrosion damage.

Between the fuel analysis and the extruded diesel transport material analysis, you should have a pretty darned good idea whether stress corrosion cracking is the problem. Good luck.

Edited to add...
Sometimes extruded diesel transport material is call fuel line. I'm not sure why.
you talk pertier than a 3 pound *****

and malards....I would love to have a beer with you some day
you are funny as hell
