Smells like fuel leak...

Donna Kilpatrick Hello all-
I have a new MF 75 HP tractor (350 hours) that I use in my work as the Livestock Manager at Heifer International's Overlook Farm in Rutland, MA. I am the only operator of this tractor. Lately (during the last week) the tractor has been smelling really strongly of diesel but I have looked everywhere and see no leaks. I was turning a huge amount of compost last weekend when I noticed the smell, but apparently it was REALLY bad, because the clothes that I was wearing smell SO strongly of fuel that they are still out on the porch. I also woke up in the middle of the night and threw up for about two hours after I had been on the tractor all day- I feel confident it was from the fumes. I can't see smoke and I can't see a leak. Does anyone have any idea what I should do??? Of course... I need to cut hay next week and the tractor is down. That's always the way it works. I have a lot of tractor experience (20+ years) and have never seen anything quite like this. Thanks- Donna
