While driving home from work Friday the #4 fuel tube that comes from the fuel bar and goes into the injectors started leaking causing diesel to leak over my entire motor and undercarriage of vehicle. I drove the vehicle about 20 miles as I did not know there was a leak. I could see smoke coming from what I thought was my exhaust behind the truck but then noticed my fuel gage started going down quickly and when I made it home smoke started coming from under hood. An extreme amount of smoke. About 10 gallons of diesel was leaked out. This could have ignited and / or exploded causing serious injury or death to myself and surrounding vehicles / homes. I was able to find the leak and purchased replacement part from my local Dodge dealership. The parts department told me the #4 tube, which is the one I replaced, was very common to leak. If this is very common...something should be done. If one tube is common to leak all others are questionable as well. The part cost me $52.60 plus labor to change.
