I have a 04 6.0 with only 89000 on it. My problem is if I let it idle over a minute it starts sucking fuel what could be the prob. I let it idle 4 ten minutes the other day and it used a 1/4 of a tank. The truck is all stock.

Not possible unless you have a leak or you were parked on a slope

The truck idles good. It just sucks fuel while idling. No leaks either.

Mine uses more fuel on high idle than low idle, but still not that much fuel. I think you may have a fuel guage problem.

If it was sucking fuel it would be idling high or leaking. Nothing else can happen so if neither of those are true then your gauge is bad or your parked on a slope and just think you've burned a lot of fuel.
