The oil filter gasket is built into the oil filter, just replace the filter and you should be fine if this is where its leaking at

and oil NOT grease on the new filter o-ring and only hand tighten it. WHEN spin-on filters are installed properly and serviced on a regular basis ,under normal conditions you should NOT need a filter wrench to remove it.ALSO would be good idea to completely clean area around filter mount so you have a better chance of see where the leak is really coming from if it's not the filter ( is the pressure sending unit right above the filter on this engine?...just some random thougts ...randomly . good luck.
