I have recently noticed a strong odor of gas when I start my truck and run or move it for a short period. I have not noticed any gas on the ground but releze it would evaporate very quickly. I have looked under the hood immediately after turning off the engine but can see no evidence of leaking gas. Can you please guide me on where to focus my attention. Thank you

You have a leak and it could be anywhere between the tank and the engine. You will have to get the truck up in the air and examine it with the engine running to find it while under pressure. It will disappear quickly when shut off.
