I filled my newell full to the top of the neck with diesel. Drove about 3 miles and parked in front of my house on a very steep street. I parked in front of my house facing downhill. When I moved the newell this morning, there was a significant circle of diesel fuel on the pavement under the MH. Probably what appeared to be at least 1 gallon. Anyone have any experience with where the likely culprit is for a leak like this, or is there some type of an overflow mechanism because I filled it so full and then parked it on an angle? Suggestions or advice appreciated.

look underneath and you should see an overflow tube that made your puddle

Larry is correct, Nothing wrong just your parking angle.

I agree. Do not leave diesel fuel on your coach. If you don't clean the diesel fuel off it can eat into your paint and could cause damage to the exterior of your coach.
