Try clamping the rubber parts of the fuel supply pipe and fule return pipe, one at a time. That will tell you which way the pressure is being lost. If neither make any difference (ie you still get a loss) it points to leaking injectors or an external (pipe) leak. Not much fuel needs to leak to reduce the pressure. Also join in a gauge if possible to watch the pressure go down.
