Got in the car this evening at a friend's house, started the car, and 
moved it about 50 feet.  Shut it off, went to talk to some people, 
got back in, started the car- and was greeted with an overwhelming 
odor of gasoline.  Great.

Popped the hood, fuel pressure regulator is about half-covered in 
gas.  Nope, nothing loose.  Start up the car, and look some more- 
there's gas dripping at an alarming rate from the short bit of hose 
from the FPR to the fuel rail.  Of course there's no way to fix it. 
So the car's sitting until most likely tuesday, unless the part takes 
longer to get.

The fun bit is that this is only one of what, 4 total hoses in the 
engine compartment, and another 1-2 by the tank?  I can't wait until 
the big lines fail, or the one by the filter lets go over the
