is it leaking from the fill hole area or the engine area is the gas cap tightened all the way yet

I put my head up by the fuel pressure regulator to listen for the fuel pump to come on it does but gas is leaking from the regulator near thefuel line but I can't tell if it's coming from the seam in the regulator or the fuel line fitting I have tried starting with the cap tight and loosened

just put a rubber line over the general vicinity of the leak and put hose clamps on the end of it. if you take the regulator of and put it in some gas and plug the hole(s) and see if the gas leaks out
