strong gas smell, but can't locate source

GMC Savana van 2000: replaced fuel pump last fall, then shortly after the gas line from engine side, to fuel filter, popped off (old clip, wore out) on road trip! Replaced gas filter to have a better catch/clip on. A little hard to start, first start in morning, but starts right up the rest of the day. possibly from bad seal leaking in line? really stumped! no visible leaks on clean surfaces! Any help would be very appreciative, thanks, Steve

Added a few corrections to my posting above, to try and make it a little clearer to try to understand.

GMC Savana van 1500, year 2000: replaced fuel pump last fall, then shortly after that, the gas line from engine side, to fuel filter, popped off (old clip, wore out) while on road trip! Replaced gas filter to have a better catch/clip to connection gas line to filter. It's a little hard to start, first thing in the morning, but starts right up the rest of the day. I'm thinking its possibly from bad seal leaking somewhere in line? really stumped! no visible leaks on clean surfaces under van! The small of gas doesn't seem to be near engine. Any help would be very appreciative, thanks, Steve
