If its still coming from the tubes its probably just excess or a major problem if some sort lol its hard to tell if your seals are bad without filling it back up with fluid. If it still leaks catch all the fluid in a clean pan and re use. No need to waste it

Yesterday I drove out to the beach, did some sand wheeling, then drove back. No problems with the fluid! Just the same slow leak from the old water/oil mixture. In a couple hundred miles I'll change out the fluids again just to flush it all out. Thanks for all the help guys!
