Dumping gas in tailpipe

My car has 269087 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If the fuel is dumping into the exhaust pipe, then there is either a burned valve and the gas is not burning in a cylinder or one or more fuel injectors are leaking. If you need further assistance with fuel in your exhaust system, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
