That tube comes from the Water Drain from the Fuel Filter Housing (open it by sliding the Yellow Lever at the back of the housing). Now, here's what is probably wrong. The O-rings on that valve are leaking. It's an easy fix though
Thanks! Wow, so is it normal to have that much water in the filter housing? I recently changed the fuel filter. I guess that is suspect. I'm wondering if I just didn't close the valve all the way <shrug>
There is some confusion here. The tube dripping water is from the AC it drips when being used to drain excess water it usually leaves quite a big puddle and can surprise many folks. The other one is the drain tube from the back of the fuel filter housing. There are two different tubes here etc. Its rare to have much if any water in the fuel filter housing so I doubt you have any etc. The o rings on the fuel bowl drain valve are almost always a when not if in terms of dripping. Im betting the valve is already closed all the way but the o rings are failing is all. Takes 10 minutes if you take your time to clean etc. I would also unplug the fuel bowl heater cord on the back just by the drain valve. The fuel bowl heater is pretty much worthless and when it fails it kills power to the ecm causing no start issues etc. Another super common item etc. I see -25 winters and have not had the fuel bowl heater plugged in, in years with zero issues.
