Fuel Pressure sensor location? 2012 Ford E350 5.4 gas

Fuel Pressure sensor location? 2012 Ford E350 with 5.4 gas engine.
Trying to address lack of power when going uphill. No codes. I'm trying to replace the fuel pressure sensor. Amazon, Rock auto, and others call for a rail type sensor but the rail has no sensor.

So, Where is the fuel pressure sensor on 2009+ vans?

To complicate things, even more, my van is dual fuel, CNG and Gasoline so I have two sets of injectors and rails, but the Gasoline system should be identical to the regular gasoline van.
Thanks

Beginning about model year 2005 or so the Scharader valve test port was removed in favor of fuel pressure being shown in a "relative fuel pressure" PID via a scanner.

I'm kinda looking for an "easy" way to add that test port back to my '05 with 5.4 gasser.

It's not the Schrader port that I'm missing, it's the actual sensor that I cannot find.

The rail post-2009 does not include the sensor (red circle on the pre-2008 ones). Where is it? I assume there is still the need to measure the fuel pressure.

The injection rail has the Schrader valve in the middle of the rail on the passenger side on my 2012.

I have the CNG injector rail and the gasoline injection rails out. Replacing coils and spark plugs. . Not sure how accessible the port is is once all the hoses, cables, and transmission dip-stick are in place. In my case, it is useless as the CNG injector rail covers the Schrader valve.

The pressure sensor is nowhere to be found on the engine bay.
