Has anyone figured out a better method the locate a leak other than a Gas Pressure test gauge and Leak Detector Spray?

  1. Bottle of soapy water - pretty much what "leak detector spray" probably is.
  2. Call the gas company. I have always found them very happy to help sort these things out before the building blows up and makes bad press for them. I suppose your gas company might vary, but probably not.
  • +1 while the IR camera in @JimmyFixIt's answer is really cool and I want one, soapy water is available in every household, making this a better answer IMO.

Infra-red cameras, or what are sometimes called thermal imaging devices, are great at finding methane and are much cheaper now (as low as like $200) than they were even just a few years ago:
