Don't want to doubt you, but I'd definitely check to make sure it feels lightly oily or even soak some a few drops into a paper towel and see if it ignited (careful of course). Assume it's not running rough / missing occasional firings, right?

This can also be caused by a defective fuel pressure regulator. (Ford Ranger)

If its smells like gas, you are putting too much gas in the engine and some is unburnt and going out the exhaust. Exhaust underneath means there is a leak in the system somewhere.

What does exhaust means?

Exhaust is an automobiles tail pipe. Emissions are submitted through this pipe into the air. The emissions from the exhaust (tail pipe) is pollution. You can find the exhaust on a vehicle in the rear half of the car sticking out. The exhaust is connected to the engine and the burnt fuel is now in the matter of a gas (emmisions) and it comes out of the exhaust (tail pipe.) The exhaust will be sticking straight out the back, in front of the right rear wheel, or from behind the right rear wheel. Alternatively it can also mean to use up or wear out

Exactly what is the purpose of a flex pipe and what are its components and how does it work?

The purpose of the flex pipe is to give the exhaust some flexibility. On front wheel cars since the motor is mounted crosswise, when you give it gas the motor rocks and would over time break the exhaust pipe or even the exhaust manifold. On rear wheel drive cars, the exhaust pipe can twist which gives the needed flex. As far as components, it is just a woven metal sleeve over a piece of pipe that isn't attached to the ends of the flex tube. The outside woven part allows the exhaust to flex.

Why does your exhaust pipe leak water that smells like gas?

Condensation forms in the exhaust system while it is cooling and as gas fumes pass through the system it bound to smell that way. If large amounts of water come out of the exhaust it may be a sign that there is a blown head gasket, cracked head or block causing water from the cooling system to enter the cylinders.

Is dual pipes better then single?

Depending on if you do the cheap... Kind where only one exhaust pipe is actually being used then nothing... But if you get a legit type of exhaust, a.k.a. FlowMasters, O-flow, Magna exhaust, etc. Then you would have to pipes hooked up to the engine... Which means more exhaust, which can sometimes make it harder for the engine to generate heat which would take up more gas not a lot but it would take up more gas...
