Have lurked on the site for awhile. I just had my trx spraying fuel/gas from under the cab which has caused me to setup an acct and ask for advice...
quick summary of what happened : 2nd start of the day (4hrs in between), rough start. Running fine, back up 20 feet, pulled forward 10 feet, heavy smell of fuel. Shut down, gas all over! Getting on the tow truck at 2. Anything specific I should ask at dealership?
Video will be posted soon.

I'd probably ask them to fix the fuel leak. Probably a fitting on the fuel rail, or hopefully something easy to find.

Yeah, ask for a tow to get your brick to the dealer for them to fix what most likely is a loose fuel fitting

Bet the fuel line broke. They used flimsy plastic connector pieces instead of a metal attachments. It should be an easy fix.

I had a smell of fuel in my truck too. I thought it must have been something outside next to me. I have to look now.
I didn't see a puddle though
