Hi Camille,
If you are looking for the ventilation pipe from the diesel tank you can find it on the port side, inside the locker, ending on the outside near the windlass. It's a ventilation terminal similar to the one you can find for the water tank in the hull on the starboard side.
Anyway, the diesel is not leaking by this terminal.
The leak should be at any diesel tube with slack or the tank service lid. But the origin of the problem should be the ventilation pipe obstructed, creating high pressure inside a full diesel tank during sailing.
Before tight every clamp and nut, I'm going to check the ventilation pipe and the terminal for any obstruction. Because with the tank half full this doesn't happen.
