Sounds like a leaking fuel line. Please get it fixed NOW!! You're driving a fire waiting to happen!! Since you're not having any performance issues it most likely is leaking on the pressure (output) side of the pump somewhere under the car. Fuel can flash over from engine heat or if someone flicks a cigarette out their window you could have a fire!! HTH. -Jim

My guess wud be that , but first to check is the fuel filter that located under rear passenger side ,

Another thing to check is engine oil level , ifs it's low then the oil leaking from oil pan.
