finding a fuel leak (somewhere near/around fuel filter bowl)?

Wondering if anyone might have tips on finding a fuel leak that is coming (i think) from somewhere around the fuel filter bowl. If I watch that area with a flashlight (while engine running) I think that I can see the fuel accumulate, but am having a hard time identifying the source.

Only leaks while running, ends up dripping out tranny dust cover area, pretty steady drip rate. Significant enought that I've lost about 3 - 3.5 MPG.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Does anybody have a step by step for pulling the fuel pump out or of at least how to get in there and tighten down all the connections? I am having pretty much the same issue. Fuel collecting in the valley on both sides of the fuel filter housing and dripping down the back of the engine over the transmission cover, bell housing, and starter motor.
