Fuel leaks are easy to detect due to the smell and stains it causes but not too easy to pinpoint due to the fact the fuel dries up very quickly and the stains can cover a large area as the fuel can seep along surfaces.
If it is dripping, it should be from a pressurrised source. You mentioned noticing it leakng from a hose, if there is any joint near the hose, it could be the fitting is not secure or the sealing is bad.
If it is from the fuel tank, it migh occur only when the fuel inside tank is more than a certain level and would stop leaking when the level drops.
A visual check is required and maybe you need to top up the fuel as well.
