    What kind of truck, year, make, model?

    Dual tanks, single tanks, where are your tank(s) located.

    Carbureted, TBI, Fuel injection?

    What kind of trail, mud, rocks, logs?

    Sounds like a supply line leak.

    When you start it, the fuel goes to the pump instead of the ground.

    Path of least resistance.
