I had a small boil over when making a batch and once I chilled the wort and put it in the bucket I had a lapse and forgot about the boil over and raised the total volume to 5 gallons. Will this affect the normal amount of sugar used to prime bottles?

No it only lower your ABV slightly

Your priming sugar is based off the volume of beer your bottling and the volume of co2 you want in the bottle the yeast have already eaten all available sugars by the time your bottling so it wouldn't matter how much you lost or didn't lose in the first place.

Thanks that's what I thought but just to double check, never encountered that problem before.
