fuel leak at pump/filter? on W126

Hi everybody,
when I changed the diff. fluid this afternoon, I noticed some drops around the fuel pump. It looked like the second rubber protector had the drops. (see picture 1). When I came back from the test drive after diff. fluid was changed, it was a lot worse (see picture 2). I could even smell the gasoline when I approached the rear of the car to look under it.
I filled the tank this morning and just drove it 20 minutes at highway speed before taking picture 2.
Any ideas why it would leak that much?
I wanted to do the filter anyway. Do I need to replace all the hoses or is there some pressure problem somewhere? Could it be from a clogged fuel filter?
Your help is much appreciated.
