It could be the fuel pump. Check this: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/67...-question.html The pump is not too hard to change. Check here: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/50...ight=fuel+pump

Let us know if we can help.

I Cleaned The Area With A Degreaser And Let It Idle For Awhile And No Leaks. I Drove It Up The Road And Back And Now Theres A Small Puddle Under The Fuel Pump Looks Like It Comes From Under The Fuel Filter Housing Or The Front Of The Fuel Pump. It Only Leaks When I Drive It. Not Idling.

Mine did not leak at idle either and it was the fuel pump. Its probably leaking from the weep hole on the pump which means the pump is dying. Fuel canister cracks and leaks are common too. You have to clean it again and try going for a shorter drive, maybe just back and forward in the driveway..

Its A Very Small Puddle. Wonder How Long It Will Last. If It Was The Canister You Would Think It Would Always Leak If It Was Cracked.
