Cheers. It's only a 4" duct, there mightn't be room enough for the fuel line at this rate.

Went in there this pm, not sure where it's coming from now. Although there is some chaffing where the fuel line enters the duct, it's nowhere near through. I need to trace it, fuel slopping about in the console with all those leccy bits is a worry.

You need to get Groomy in there with his 12v pump to clear it out.
I wonder whether it's leaking on the fuel filter and running/dripping down the hose?

A gaiter over the end of the duct may be a good thing, if you can get one on there.

Dai's suggestion has a certain resonance....

Is the hose from the filler intact all the way to the tank?

I cleaned and dryed it out this afternoon. We'll go in search tomorrow. fuel sender gasket is also on the suspect list.
