many free flowing exhausts drip condensation after
startup and some stock exhausts do to.

3rd for condensation.

But just to be sure either dip your finger in the liquid or a napkin and smell it. It's it smells like gas, it's gas but if it smells like nothing it's problably water(not the drinkable kind though).

The stock mufflers also piss out water from the rear drip holes.

that is more tied to the cats then gas leak..
bad cats can make the car and fumes smell like a box of rotten eggs.

try parking on an incline and get pan to catch the fluid after startup. it may take a few minutes.

The gases released from any combustion engine's exhaust is deadly, whether the exhaust is hot or not. Carbon monoxide is the main gas released, and it is looking to bond with another oxygen to become carbon dioxide. When you breathe in carbon monoxide it starts to steal oxygen from your blood, and eventually you suffocate.

I think he meant gasoline, as in unburned fuel. If you have actual fuel coming out of the exhaust pipe, there's a major problem (at least one cylinder not firing at all, or several/all of them barely firing). It should be noticeable that it doesn't run worth a $#!+ if it is raw gasoline coming out of the exhaust.
