Fuel Pump question w/pic

78 Jeep Wagoneer. PO recently put in new Holley carb, fuel lines and electric pump. Runs pretty good, has flat spot/bog but that's another thread. Anyway the MPG is horrible, expected and not a huge issue for me but the fumes are out of control strong to the point of having to hold your breath, the problem is that I can't figure out where it's coming from. I'm not seeing leaking fuel anywhere on the engine or under, maybe a couple small spots now and then but nothing substantial. I noticed the mechanical pump still on the block has an open line, could this be the problem?? Hard to see but if you look closely you can see the brass tip at the top of the pump.
