The fuel pressure regulator diaphragm may have a hole in it and will need to be replaced. I recommend not driving the vehicle until this issue is repaired due to the potential fire hazard from the leaking fuel. Have a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to come and locate the fuel leak and make the necessary repairs.
