Car just suddenly stopped working

I parked the car one day, the next i come to start it, and nothing! It cranks, has spark, but i seem to be lacking enough fuel to start. When i try to start it, the trailing plugs are soaked, the leading are dry. I poured raw fuel into the intake and it starts. So any ideas what would cause there to be fuel, but not enough to start?

Well... I ended up changing the injectors to a known working set of 680's, and then i went on the labtop checking to see if any setting had been changed by accident. I saw that dwell had been changed to time base, which then i changed to duty cycle according to i remebered. After throwing in a fresh battery, along with a boost, it started. However there was so much smoke and what looked to be liquid carbon comming out of the exhaust...it stained my driveway! I let it warm up, cleaned the plugs, and removed some fuel.. Now its back to normal!
