Check the valve on the fuel/water separator/fuel filter housing. Mine had the o-rings in it go bad. It was easy for me to find the leak because I had a hose connected to mine to make it easier to drain off and you cold tell it was coming from the hose.

Yep... The valve is on the back side of the round fuel filter housing under the plastic cover. There is a rubber connector from th valve to a hard line down the passenger side of the engine. I put a piece of fuel line on that to extend it down into a bottle when I drain off the filter (each time I change my oil and/or fuel filter).

See if you see fuel dripping out of that hard line or feel it to see if it's wet wit fuel.

$40-50 for a new valve if that's it. 4 torx head screws hold it in. Once the engine is cool, it's about 30-60 minutes taking you time to swap.
