Has anyone experienced fuel leaks from the engine bay? I have a strong smell of fuel coming from the AC vents and the engine bay. This only happens when I come to a stop for a minute or so. It doesn't do every time. But does happen everyday. Started this past Saturday. I haven't been around these past few months. Since June 2018 I've only done 2.5K miles on the car.
From what I can see in the engine bay. I see no leaks, but do smell it. This weekend I'll pull the intake manifold off & take a look at the injectors.
Any other suggestions?

Found a 1x1ft puddle of fuel under the vehicle today. I’m now losing fuel. I normally get 325-350 miles per tank. I got 275 miles on a full tank.

Was able to get the car on a lift. Unfortunately a downpour happened right before lifting. The underside was wet & any residual fuel was wiped away. I do suspect the forward fuel line is leaking. I didn’t remove the plastic cover that runs from the tank to the front of the car.

The upper part of the engine is completely dry. Fuel pressure sensor is dry.
