Chances are you have a filler hose leak.

Edit... I moved this over to the 2.9L forum.

Get under it and have a look. Unless it super clean you will see a trail where the fuel is coming from.

A legend to the old man, a hero to the child...
Is it under the truck or all over the bedside?

If its under the truck then yes filler neck, if its all over the bedside find a different gas station or try only setting the nozzle holder on its second setting.
