It's possible that it's just unburnt fuel/oil that has drained out the exhaust, especially if it's black. Usually if there's a L/U leak there'll be water in the gearcase also. And just for kicks smell it, if it is gear lube it'll stink like it. My Evinrude 85hp drips black oily sludge from the exhaust over time when sitting. It's just leftovers....
