Thank you all!

I plugged the racor gage to see if that was the source of the leak.
My gage is showing vacuumed and is not connected.

I will now try to access the the tank / line under the sink.

All seals in the racor were replaced , but no guarantee that there may be a crack or seal mating problem.

I will look for an alternative for the racor

But what is a good replacement and is there one that will work with the water in fuel gage on dash?

Default Fuel problem

Could it be your fuel cap. Drive an hour and there is a vacuum in the tank? Or if your tank has a breather on it that could be clogged.

Look for a broken / fitting in the fuel line from the tank to the engine. Someone has gotten overzealous in over-tightening perhaps. It happens...

The access hole to that isn't under the sink, but there's a screw under there that indicates the location of the hole in the floor in front of the sink... You're going to have to go through the flooring to get to it!

Is a fuel heater required in the winter?

I had to replace my Racor clear bowl because mine was sucking air at the 2 metal pass thru tabs where the heat wires connect through the bowl. It would not leak fuel but when throttled up I could see tiny bubbles in the bowl, might want to make sure that area is sealed good.
