The only question I can come up with right off - Did you use another wrench to counter the force when tightening the fitting? If I remember correctly, the filter element has the flats to use a wrench to counter hold. If you didn't counter the tightening pressure you likely broke the fitting loose, causing the leak. If you did counter, then perhaps the fitting isn't tight enough.

The fitting is for the fuel accumulator, it's a flare fitting. There isn't a seal of any kind on flare fittings. Try retighting & then backing off 3-4 times.
