Leaking fuel

Drove the Defender about 50 miles yesterday, filled the tank completely up, which I rarely do, come out this morning to fuel dripping from what I believe is the "fuel tank level reader"...or is it the fuel pump. Any idea what part I need to replace to fix this? First time I have seen this, could it be from the 104 degree heat?

Looks like the fitting is leaking. It's a compression fitting with an olive. You can get new olives from any hardware store, they're a standard size.

Be CAREFUL loosening the fitting. Some of the pickups have a plastic pipe, and it's fragile. Others have metal and they are usually rusty and weak.
