Have your EVAP system checked. While you're driving the EVAP system will attempt to pull a vacuum on the gas tank to ensure gas fumes are not escaping from the fuel system. It could throw a fault code. At any rate I've seen 2010 and 2011 pickups have a faulty EVAP system and while driving it continues to pull a vacuum until it literally crushes the fuel tank inward like a beer can.
