A leak will leave wetness behind for a brief time. A stain may be left after it evaporates.
The fuel line is pressurized from the tank going forward.
A cracked or disconnected rubber evaporative emission hose will make a fuel odor with no wetness, but won't really affect fuel economy.
If you only smell the fuel odor after driving, it is likely a pressurized line/hose, fitting or seal.
If you pull the vacuum hose off of the rail-mounted fuel pressure regulator and fuel comes out, the regulator has failed.
It is important to find this before driving the vehicle any further as it is a fire hazard.
