Injector leaking? (VX)

Well my 92 civic VX is smelling gas as hell and my fuel consomption as been terrible on my late trips (25mpg and worse!! at 60mph). Also, now its doing small spots under the car when I park direct under the engine bay and those spots smell clearly the gas.

So, I did some researches on the site and found that it might be an injector leaking or a vacuum leak.

Any thoughts on that about what could be the problem?

You had better check it out ASAP or risk losing the car to a fire...

My 87 Acura was MPFI and in 1997, it developed leaky O-rings where the fuel rail went over the top of each of the injectors. It wasn't too hard or expensive to fix. It started with a seeping of gas and a bad smell, but I caught it before it got to the dripping stage.

Check all fuel lines under the hood. Check connections at fuel filter and consider taking the fuel filter off the firewall in the back. It may have become super clogged.
