hmmmm..i would have someone inspect the fuel lines that run under the truck...there should be two, running relatively side by side...is the vehicle garage kept? or can you access in indoor garage to check something underneath the truck?

my idea was for you to find a garage, and put something like a sheet of bright white paper under the length of the fuel line...or a white sheet...turn the key on, and the pump should kick in, wait a while..then off, then back on..
