I have not had mine recalibrated, primarily cause the fuel gauge works just fine.

I can come up with a theory that supports why a mechanical float sensor would not be affected by a change in volume, as it is measuring travel, not quantity. However does anyone know what the largest tank setting in our computer is? And am I able to put the 50 gal tank in a Crew Cab Long Bed? or is that only for the shorties

Tux, why do you want a 55 gal, because of the DTE?

I would get this for my truck, but I like coffee too much while driving. Coffee cup is a lot better than the spitter I had for a long time. Quitting chew was tough. I'm not giving up my coffee. However, it makes for long range rides difficult. I can't go more than 4 hours or so at a crack. So this would be a waste of valuable fun coupons for me.

Gotta remember guys, it's not just about how long you can stay in the drivers seat. It's also about picking fuel stops instead of being forced to find something within the next 30 miles. It's also about going deep into the back country and not having to worry or carry gas cans. I've heard the east coasters talk about how comforting it is to know they have a bunch of fuel in the tank when a hurricane is bearing down on them. I know folks say they love their pit stops and I get that. I love donuts and a fresh diet Mountain Dew as much as the other guy. There's just nothing particularly redeeming about the actual fueling up experience that keeps me coming back. I'm perfectly happy with only visiting the pump half as much!

I would like a larger tank for sure, but not for that price.

I find it not bad as long as I carry a jerry can for assurance.

If I don't have it, I start to worry at about 1/4 tank left. I have no problems running it right down to near empty as long as I have my spare jerry can. It's surprising how far you can go on that last 1/8 of a tank.

P.S. I've never had to use it.

Amen to what Epic said. I live in south Louisiana. The last thing u want to do when running from a hurricane is have to hunt down diesel. I would want to be able to role 10 hours down the road and be worried about where I can find fuel. Everytime a hurricane hammers the gulf or oil hits the gulf, u will have a temporary fuel shortage. I look at that extra capacity as almost a safety measure rather just a convenience. I will be installing a Titan or an aux tank soon!!

Epic - you will never convince the folks that don't see a benefit if the DTE isn't accurate - even if the gauge is.

It's ok. I'm not interested in convincing anyone. Just making sure I explain my perspective in a relatively intelligible way. I have no problem with folks doing their own thing.

As far as the MTE (miles to empty, not distance to empty) is concerned, it can be corrected. A year and a half ago I worked with the Ford engineers to include the Titan tank sizes in the dealer IDS system. Most dealers don't know about it but with a little persistence on the owner's part, they can quickly update the tank size with their diagnostic software. Now when I fill up, my MTE reads over 800 Miles to Empty.

really? thats very useful info. is that in all the dealers IDS systems? or do they have to do a specific update on their side?
