You shouldn't be getting any gas smell in your vacuum lines. Whether you do smell it or only think you do, eliminate a variable and replace the FPR if your budget allows (~$50). We have a write-up on replacing it, too.
Also, if you have access to a fuel-pressure tester, hook it up and tell us what you see. Normal readings are around 40-47 psi on our years.
