Doc here


I agree with you fully on the normal byproduct of combustion, and since I live about 25 miles east of Batman, I can attest to the fact the temperatures have soured the last 7 days here. triple digits with low humidity....where it's usually 68-75 normally..

But unless he's exaggerating a bit on the foot across puddle on each pipe, That seems a lot to be just normal condensation, unless he's got both muffler's Full of water.....

On normal condensation days here, I get a usual puddle under the pipes about the size of a silver dollar...and mild white clouds until it warms up. but never foot wide puddles..

My Vote's For a gasket somewhere gone south..
