Stillraining...actually water is a product of burning gasoline. It condenses in the cold exhaust system before the exhaust system heats up. As the system heats we see it exit as steam.


I believe it's fairly common for fuel to have some water in it when we buy it. I've doubted to condensation theory for a while.
