Problem occurs intermittently, especially when cool then stops leaking when engine is warm. When it does leak it leaks gas from the fuel line that [goes to the injecters] right onto the top of the front exhaust manifold which I think is a very serious potential fire danger!.

Fule rail began leaking dumping large quantities of gasoline onto the valve cover and would have contacted hot exhaust manifold if leak was not detected. Noticed strong gasoline smell. This was a high potential for engine fire and house fire if car had been parked in attached garage as normal. Just luck that it was discovered.
