Sample Code

///Arduino Sample Code
void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600); //Set serial baud rate to 9600 bps
}
void loop()
{
int val;
val=analogRead(0);//Read Gas value from analog 0
Serial.println(val,DEC);//Print the value to serial port
delay(100);
}

Done wiring and powered up, upload well the code, then open the serial monitor and set the baud rate as 9600, you will see the analog value. When detecting the gas, the value will make a change.
