Just to bring you up to date on this, I discussed it with a local diesel mechanic, and he agreed that there probably was an overflow valve on the fuel tank, but that the gravity feed from the auxiliary tank shouldn't cause it to open. Based on that feedback, I decided to bring it in to Ford, as my best guess was that the fuel filler hose was leaking where it fastened to the tank, and if so, it should be a warranty repair. It was a roll of the dice, because if Ford found that either there wasn't a leak, because it was normal operation of the overflow valve, or that it wouldn't have leaked in normal operation because it wasn't designed to be full for long periods of time, then I would still be out the $200-$300 to drop the tank and inspect the fittings. However, Ford did replace a defective O ring where the fuel filler hose connects to the tank, and did not believe the normal operation of the auxiliary tank should cause any problems, so they authorized the repair as covered by warranty. Yay!
