Where does fuel actually vaporize?

In a typical gasoline engine. At what point in the process does your liquid fuel actually transform into vapor?

In the carb in a carbed engine, or as they leave the fuel injectors in a fuel injected engine, so essentially as soon as it enters the combustion chamber.

They leave the injectors as a mist, assuming it's not 100% atomized, it'll turn from tiny droplets of liquid into a vapor soon afterwards.

But in general, like timmy said, fuel usually vaporizes when it enters a flaming inferno.
