drop the tank and your lean alot more.

The return happens to be rubber while the feed is mostly metal lines.
So i would say its the return that is leaking.

But drop the tank and clean everything up really good. Check for broken or cut line of course. But then throw some baby powder on it and put it back up. once everything is together start it can check for leaks.

The baby powder will make it alot easier to see the starting point of the leak.
