Stop operating the vehicle, you are a fire hazard. Get the unit towed to a shop and fixed. These are typically high pressure hoses and if broken, you need all of them inspected. No need to burn.

    there is a fule pressure regulatory there going into the injeter rail. along with it is an "O" ring there. You may want to replace it because those cars FPR and "O" rings go bad every 50,000 to 100,000 miles.

    I believe that it is steel line that runs all the way from fuel filter to the fuel rail, the only thing is an oring where it connects to the fuel pressure regulator.

    Also check fuel injectors that they are not leaking and running down the fuel rail making it look like a leak there. If it is a bad fuel injector, try to use as close to oem as possible, i have had issues with different injectors.

Check engine light/evap leak

Getting a smoke test is the right direction to go in.
The computer vents the gas tank to the vapor canister while the engine is running. It also pressure tests the system for leaks. Some where between the gas tank and the vapor canister there may be a leaking hose or valve. Or it could be the gasket on top of the tank where the pump assembly went in.
The gas cap could have been a source for the leak, the other things are not involved.

Car smells of petrol also drinkiong alot of petrol?

Lets start with the simple stuff first. Look under the car see if its leaking gas possibly from the gas tank or the gas line. Then with the car not running look around the engine compartment and see if you see any gas leaking. Also if the gas smell is stronger in the engine compartment. Look at your gas line especially toward the top of the engine you may spot the leak. I need to caution you if the leak is in the engine compartment and your handy and you can repair it that's excellent. But if you do spot the leak it might be very dangerous to drive the car somewhere. Gas leaks can be very hazardous if they are in the engine compartment. If your not handy then I would recommend you contact your local auto repair shop for repairs.

I hope this helps you out, if it does please give me a YES on the web page you just recieved my response on. Thank you.

You can smell gas all around the car, but cannot tell that any gas is leaking. The vapor canister looks fine, but can see gas below the engine on the tyrod connector.

Check fuel lines that run up side of engine. Lots of times they can chaffe against block and leak. Also be careful when filling car, if you top tank to top of fill neck that puts pressure on lines to canister where canister will fill w/fuel and literally ruin vapor canister.

I am smelling gas but see no gas leaking

Is your check engine light on? Fumes rise, so if the leak is in the top of the tank or the filler neck, this would allow the fumes to escape, smelling of gas, and tripping your check engine light.

I have a 1992 Celica with a gas leak in the front of the car toward the back of the engine. At first it only smelled like gas but now I have a large gas leak right at my front left tire. Is this the fuel...

That is the right area.
Check the fuel filter which should be clipped to the inner guard in that area.
Suggest you do a through degrease and clean of your engine bay ( leave the engine running and don't hose the distributor ) , it makes it a whole lot easier to find perished hoses and leaks.

2005 Chevy Impala exhaust smell

neither one of these would cause gas to leak. sure it is not coolant ? if you think it is gas it is not safe to drive car as it could catch on fire. possible cause would be a leaking injector.

Fuel Leak

I wouldn't drive or start it with a fuel leak, it needs to be up on a lift to see it all clear, before any proper diagnosis.
