Default *.O.*. - Fuel leak

Need help Has anyone experienced a fuel leak. Appears to be coming from passenger side just in front of the rear tire. Could this be related to the recall notice I recieved about having the fuel pressure regulator replaced

Nope.....you got a ruptured fuel line, or a ruptured fuel filter, or a bad seal on the fuel filter and it'* leaking out, running down the line and dripping out.

Just in front of the right rear tire is the fuel filter. Could be related....or not.

Guys, thanks for the tips. At first inspection it did appear to be the fuel filter leaking, or more precisely, the quick disconnect at the filter. Got a new filter and put it on. Discovered that it was the upper fitting at the tube coming out of the tank.Got that disconnected and decided that the plastic clip that holds the line on looked too tattered and worn to trust it to hold the feed line securely so... went to NAPA, got a length of fuel line hose and a couple of clamps and repaired it that way. Alot of work for a little hose But, it'* all fixed. Thanks again
