    Is it a fuel injection system or carburetor? I would just follow the fuel line up to the front of the truck to see where exactly the fuel is coming from. Shouldn't be that hard to find if you are losing that much fuel in a short amount of time... Good luck.

    How can we tell where it's coming from without being there? It can be coming from a number of places.
    Have a fire extinguisher handy, turn the truck on and look for the leak. Sounds like it'd be pretty obvious where it's coming from.
