Condensation in my tailpipe

Is condensation ie water dripping in my tailpipe, a good sign of a healthy engine or bad. What causes it?

You are leaking race car gas from your race car. It's manly to drive a race car, Chicks dig that, big mufflers and modified VANOS.

Some of you are new here or don't pay attention much... but you guys don't know the history of the OP's posts here, do you... lol. if only you knew.

do you guys even read user names before typing serious replies to posts? you'd think the name alone would give it away...

A byproduct of combustion is water - no way to get around actual, natural byproduct of a process. Because you did not see it does not mean it is not there.

The typical result of mixing Nitrogen, oxygen, helium, argon, carbon dioxide, neon. methane and krypton (air) and Hydogen and carbon (gasoline) by a spark ignition produces about 13% H2O from the reaction.

They must be those cars I heard of that suck all the water out of the atmosphere as it enter the intake. Even in the winter when it's pi55ing down with rain. Pretty clever that. I wonder where it goes.

I've seen some pretty remarkable questions and comments on here from members that weren't trolling. So not quite sure how you are supposed to discern. The one that sticks in my mind was the guy who claimed that driving around in 2nd/3rd gear all the time had no impact on fuel consumption.

Some people are actually clueless. Doesn't mean they can't ask questions though.

The guy I refered to in my response to Alex was serious. I have to admit that my initial response to his comment was bewilderment. It was SO dumb I didn't think he could be being serious. But he made quite an issue out of when I corrected him as I recall. He was being serious. An awsome level of ignorance that you don't expect to find on a car maintenance forum. So when you make a dumb comment I don't see why I would assume you are not just dumb. It's not in keeping with my experience.

What sort of change in the combustion chamber would yield vodka out the tailpipe?
