Curious, why does one wait until the last minute to look for fuel? I know my limits and usually pick up fuel way before I see fumes to get me to a destination.

Why wait? Holy smokes, that was the whole problem. When towing, I just didn't have enough range and I cover 200 miles pretty fast and it's about that time the MTE started making me nervous. I said this before but I'd have to stop for fuel before I have to go pee. It's the whole feeling of just getting up a good head of steam and then feeling like you have to stop AGAIN to get fuel. That tended to make me stretch as far as I could which is a bad thing.

There's other things like, the kids are temporarily quiet so I push for another 20 miles before they ask "are we there yet"? Maybe I'm convoying with by buddies who have a Chev and a Dodge and they have larger tanks. In that situation, size does matter. lol

I'm with you Epic! My 1700 mile trip with the 8500lb trailer a few weeks ago was quite annoying having to stop every 3 hrs or so for fuel. I will do everything in my power to get this upgrade approved by the "Finance Dept"

Each tank has a limit, I just noticed some, like to squeeze the fumes out.

Just installed my tank a few days ago. had a few questions.

What are those two blue spouts on each side of the tank that are covered up?

What did you do with your OEM tank and skid plate? Save it just in case, or did you toss it out? Thanks!

I was thinking about getting one of them tanks, but I have a slip tank / toolbox that holds 85 gallons on the back of my truck. I worked it out last night and I have a fuel range of 2600kms. I think I should be good lol.

On my GMC I cleaned it then tossed it.
Then when I sold the truck I had people contacting me asking if I was selling the tank.

Had I kept it I could have easily gotten 5-600 dollars for it and been half way to the new tank.

When the 65 becomes available I'll be keeping the OEM tank.

Ha!
Ford Techs at the factory use this procedure

I am guessing it is in the manual for the legal eagles.

I think I might have a problem with my tank. Is anybody else getting a rush of air when they open their tank to fill it up? I looked under the truck, and the inside of the tank is kinda sunk in? I hope I don't have to drop the tank and check the vent tube. I know its installed right.... I think

Lex - is it a vacuum in the tank or higher pressure? Does the air rush in or out of the tank when you open the cap?

I think a vacuum. But I could be wrong. Is your tank dented in twards the back just a little?

I just checked right now and found that there is no air movement when I take the fuel cap off the tank. Maybe your tank vent is not working?

I have the skid plate on my tank so I cannot see if it is deformed in any way.

I just got back from inside and found that the T where the blue hose and the other two join was pointing down (the blue line was angled down then back up) I don't know if this was my problem or not, but I'll give it a shot. It says in the instructions for the vent line to always have a down hill run on it or else it will create a vaccum? It was the side next to the driveshaft that I noticed was caving in a little. Might try to stick a air nozzle in the tank tomorrow to get it back to shape.

trying to fix those hoses while the tank is mounted is nothing short of a miracle. Although my wrist and fingers look all cut up. Better than my fuel tank imploding I guess.

I just checked the side of my tank, no deformation. If you had a vacuum in the tank, that would explain it. I'd be a little cautious about pumping a bunch of air into the tank though. Not sure if the tank seals or other fuel lines would like that. I'd say just give it a warm day with a full tank and it should straighten out.

I don't know what to think about the downhill hose theory either. I know I didn't do anything special when I installed mine. I'd suspect that little plastic vent at the end of the line first. Mine is easy to get to as it follows the route up onto the spout assembly. It would be a quick test to pull that out and blow in it a bit.
