    If you have an injector that is either stuck open mechanically, or being commanded open by a grounded wire between it and the PCM, or a failed driver (transistor) in the PCM then you could end up with raw fuel dripping from the exhaust. Another possible source of that much fuel would be the fuel pressure regulator leaking and the fuel traveling into the intake manifold via it's vacuum hose.

    How is the engine running, is it rough, misfiring? Has the PCM identified a circuit failure, or a misfiring cylinder?

    If you are certain that this is fuel and not condensation from exhaust gasses, you really should see a shop. The potential for trouble beyond the injector issue is significant. You could trap fuel on top of a piston and hydro-lock a cylinder. You certainly are diluting the oil which could cause wear inside the engine, and of course there is the risk of managing to ignite the fuel at the exhaust opening.

    Likely water, exhaust on startup will smell some of gas, but the key questions are: Any problems with how it drives? Any warning lights on?
