I'd start by checking the flexible stainless-wrapped fuel line by the fuel 
filter, right above the area of the leak.  Known possible leak, especially while 
the engine is running or shortly thereafter (fuel pressure still high); 
checking it a while later may not identify the leak.  May leak only when very cold 
or hot; try lightly flexing the line with the engine running.  Also likely to 
spray fuel onto the exhaust and manifold.

No- there was no ice or snow on the car anywhere for this to come 
from, save a little chunk at the bottom.  The leak was also 
extensive- at least a couple cups worth on the ground when I saw it.

The challenge at the moment seems to be getting the liner out- I've 
removed almost all the screws far as I can tell, and pulled one of 
the plastic pins at the bottom edge(the other was a different type, 
couldn't figure out how to get it out..)  Still won't budge; I can 
wiggle it, but can't actually get it to move enough to actually see
