I need help with mouth leaks. I have tried a chin strap, cervical collar, somnifix mouth tape and 3m surgical tape but in the last couple hours of sleep I wake up with air gushing out my mouth. I usually wake up 4 or 5 hours into the night and my leak is usually near zero at that point. Has anyone had a similar problem?

You are missing the easiest solution. Use a Full Face Mask and the leaks won't matter

I have researched nasal breathing health benefits and prefer to try to make it work. i will try a full face and still try to keep my mouth closed.

There's another tool to add if you should want to try to avoid the full face. I can say others that try it, 3/4 like it. Google Knightsbridge Dual Band, a cloth cap with 2 sets of velcro to pull the jaw up but not in or out. I don't have one yet, but it's on the list after my next sleep study to get a new NIV.

You can definitely breathe through your nose with a full-face mask - just keep your mouth shut. But if your mouth does open in your sleep then the mask will help minimise leaks. I think it's worth the experiment if you can afford it.
