Hi, Colin, I hope you're well. can you take a pic for me of where it's coming from

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
cant do that unfortunately
Expert:  Kevin replied 16 days ago.

ok I mean pretty much all there is if its fuel that's leaking is the fuel filter itself and it's not unusual for them to rot and leak in the way you are describing.in moist cases replacement of the filter is needed to cure
