Lets start from one extreme and work opposite. Is someone siphoning off some of your gas? Is the puddle near the filler door area or is it way underneath? If it is underneath. Is it in the back or the front? Back could be fuel line or gas tank, from would be a fuel line. As I'm sure your aware, gasoline is extremely flamable so I would have it looked at if you believe your vehicle is leaking it.
