Noticed my gas mileage dropping recently. Also noticed if the vehicle sits for several days (2 or more),
it is hard to start -- 4 or 5 revolutions of engine instead of 1 or 2.
This AM after sitting 2 days, after startup, noticed quite a bit of gas leaking down from where the fuel filter sits on the rail. After letting gas evaporate -- about an hour -- jacked up vehicle and
took a look see. All rubber hoses/clamps to filter looked tight and filter body looked in good condition.
No pinholes on line I could see or feel.
Restarted vehicle -- started right up -- and no visible leaks
Going to put on new fuel filter tomorrow.
Haven't checked fuel pressure regulator pressure, but last time checked right on.
Anyone every had this experience as I find it quite unique.

Chances are your fuel lines going into/out of the filter are "dry rotted", causing them to leak because they are "hard" so they no longer seal properly.

I just recently had the same issue with mine, changed the filter and hoses, problem solved.
