It could be something as simple as a faulty gas cap, but you will have to do some detective work. Be prepared for the next time. Have a can of starting fluid and an old time induction timing light. You will have to have someone to crank the starter for you. When it dies, quickly hook up the timing light to the spark wire and spray some starting fluid into the air intake. Find the intake ahead of time, they aren't always obvious. Same for the spark wire, I would try for the coil wire if this unit has a distributor, you will get a better sign. You are only looking for spark, not timing. If you don't see spark, now you know what to start checking. Coil, and all the other spark stuff. If you get spark and it runs on the starting fluid, your fuel system is failing. Start with the fuel pump, filter, and any safety switches. My Ford had a 'collision' switch that would shut off the fuel pump. At your trucks age, any electronic part can be breaking down. Fuel relays are my first suspect. Never buy off brand, always OEM.
If your truck has a computer, have the codes checked.

Check all fuel lines for leaks, make sure it doesn't have bad gas in it. Listen for fuel pump when key is turned on. Change fuel filter. See if that's helps.

My 88 chevy 2500 3/4 ton runs, but when given gas

check your fuel filter under the left side of the vehicle on the frame. if this proves to good, your next step might be checking your catalytic convertor. have you checked all of your vacuum lines? one thing you can do is have your friend inside to start the vehicle and while it is idling and the air cleaner is off, look inside at the fuel injector and you throttle it and see if the injector is spraying fuel.
