Stumped

Iíve got a really dumb question and at this point am beginning to question my sanity. My fuel selector valve got stuck between both tanks which was bad because my rear tank has a hole in it. Since then Iíve severed the 2 fuel lines running to the rear tank. I know there isnít any diesel left in the rear tank but sometimes when I park my truck and get out my rear tank is leaking. Did ford install a mystery hose that Iím not seeing? I thought perhaps rain water is getting into the rear tank has previous owner drilled into to top. However when I got back to work this morning where I parked yesterday is stained in diesel?!? According to my fuel gauge Iím not losing any diesel. Thoughts?

there will always be a little in the tank until it is truly empty.
my 88's front tank dripped for close to 5 years depending on how it was parked.

I removed my front tank after siphoning all of the fuel out. There was still fuel in the bottom when I removed it and I couldn't even get 100% out after flipping the tank over with the fuel sending unit out.
