    Parked infront of my gf's house last night in the grass for an hour to...well...nevermind, but this morning her mom asks her who was outside cause there was a patch of dead grass where i had parked my truck...

    so im assuming i have a gas leak....any way how to find out where? short of letting it sit in the yard til it kills more grass to get a general idea?

    I mean...can someone pressure test it or something like that?
    any ideas?

    why dont you climb under there and look for gas on the frame or something. If it leaks fast enough to kill the yard you will be able to see it easily..

    I think the easiest way to find it is to feel around like Langosta said. The fuel lines shouldn't be very hard to follow.

    My first guess would be the fuel return lines on top of the tank.

    Next time you drive it, park on dry concrete and watch for the drops.
