Hi there,

This morning it was cold, I just let the car engine run a few minutes before I go. I was surprise to find a big gas stain under the end of the exhaust on the asphalt with a smal quantity of liquid. The car has 8 000km. Not nice for the parkway, but also worrying.

Any idea what this can means ?

Regards.

Are you certain it came from your car?
Could someone have tried siphoning, or in any other way - stealing your (or a nearby vehicle's) gas?:confused:

This would be moisture in the exhaust every car does this - look up the physics called Condensation - if this bothers you - buy an electric car with no exhaust.

Primary byproduct of combustion is water. In colder weather, it condenses as it comes out of the exhaust pipe. When everything warms sufficiently, it stays in the vapor state. Nothing to see here, go about your business.
