Try the Oct 99 issue of Truck Trends. They put Ford, Chevy, Dodge and
Toyota on the same rear wheel Dyno. Thats the only way to accurately
compair power output.

I have had a similar problem too, both the trip computer and the gauge said
I had fuel, but ran out with 100 miles left on my trip odo and gauge above
empty.

On all of your issues did the trip computer correlate the incorrect reading
of the gauge?

I've tried to try out all the features of my new truck. This includes
the 'low fuel' warning light. Twice my fuel gauge has went down to 'E'

gauge is slightly below 1/4 tank the truck has died, and would not start
until I put more gas in it. >>

I have a 99 Ford F250 PSD & have the same problem with the fuel gauge
upon carrying it back to the dealer he ordered & installed a new sensor it
did not improve the problem, I must set my trip odometer back to 0 each
time I fillup & get fuel according to the mileage before running out. I
should
have carried it back for repair, but have not yet.

My truck doesn't have a trip computer. I've gotten several responses from
people with the same problem, so we're not along.

Great, my problem left me walking between Pocatello and Twin Falls Idaho at
2:00AM! I will definitely be having FoMoCo look at it now.

Try Ford's own website, they have interior and exterior video shots that you
can control.
