Comrade: The first step is to actually identify where it's coming from. Take the shrouds off and look. If the quantity is small then a light dusting with talc near critical joints might help identify the source. If it is from a hose then simply tightening a bit might help.

Under the fill cap lives a flat washer.

Mine will leak and the fix is to remove the slime that builds up on both sides of the washer.
