Default 12.5 KW Kohler diesel generator leaking fuel

Generator is leaking diesel fuel. Under closer inspection the left side of the generator is wet with fuel. I had no issues before, but it was not used for about a month. Generator is a Kohler/Perkins 12.5 KW. Any suggestions on where to start looking? Thanks DB

David, to find any kind of leak thats not obvious I usually wash the area where the suspected leak is, then start it and look to see where it is coming from. Repair as needed. Hope this helps.
