My question is...
If the puddle has dried up, how do you know the stain was left from fuel residue?
If it wasn't fuel residue, the what was it? Is there a smell of fuel?
I agree, start the engine an look to see what's happening.
You may even start the engine and quickly shut it off and see if the rail holds pressure.
If there's no leak, walk away for a while. Monitor the area by putting some tissue there (remember you didn't start the engine and get it hot...) Come back every once in a while to see if the tissue has a fuel smell. If not put it back. Then when you're ready to conclude your test, check tissue one last tiem for a hint/smell of fuel. If there's not a hint of fuel, then press the schrader valve to see if rail is still holding pressure. If there is pressure and no fuel smell on the tissue, then likely there's no leak and your seeing evidence of something else.
