Don't really need it to be leak free, just need to manage it so leaking doesn't make things explode.

If that was the case, you'd need to know at what rate it leaked to work out how much fuel you need for a flight, and if the leakage was a "standard" rate over every aircraft. And if it was a linear equation too, but I'd hazard a guess that more pressure = more loss at a higher pressure.
