If you have a hesitation when you try to drive after you first start your truck or you notice a strong gas smell under the hood it could be a leaky fuel pressure regulator which is one the drivers side on the fuel rail I had a pressure regulator leaking on my truck it took me a while to figure what it was because I only smelled a gas smell after starting and driving a few places and then after I opened my hood and followed my nose I found that was what it was it is a easy fix cost ya about $30 I was told to disconnect power on battery and turn your key on and listen for a sound from fuel pump to release pressure this helps on the gas really leaking out and pressure before removing old one...then just take yours out and remember how you took it out and make sure you put the O ring on the new one that comes with it and just put it in and clip it and put back on rubber line and that's it... if that's not the problem then it could be leaky injectors which is not a fun job...good luck hope this helps !!

GMC Jimmy's have a record of corroded fuel lines at the fuel pump in the fuel tank. Cycle your key from "Off" to "Run" a couple times then look under the vehicle in the fuel tank area to see if there is gas dripping.

Why is my 2004 gmc yukon 5.3 Z model Burning gas?

Was the fuel mileage better prior to replacing these parts? Did you use an aftermarket MAF sensor? Have you checked scan data parameters with a scan tool hooked to the vehicle for a test drive? I have experienced some aftermarket MAF sensors causing issues. as they are not calabrated properly for vehicle application. They will work, but with side affects such as yours. A road test with a scan tool hooked up and a technician that knows how to interpet the data should be able to give some insight as to what is causing the problem
