The ability to program the fuel computer for 50 gallon and 67 gallon Titan fuel tanks is in every Ford dealers current IDS programming. Like Epic said, it has been there for a long time. Mine was reflashed to the new 50 gallon capacity well over a year ago. It works perfectly...I also see 800 miles to empty when I fill up.

Great product...and those of us who were early buyers really like ours

I am only on my third fill up on my Titan tank and my only regret was waiting to buy it.
I had cold feet but Epic's video sealed the deal for me buying one of these.
Alot easier to install than even it would appear to be in the video. I would rate my 2" lift/leveling as more involved.

I even got a Free Titan hat, in the mail last week, for registering the warranty online.

I also had the fuel tank size, in the computer, changed by my local Ford dealer. Not something that was a need, but I wanted it done right, or what I thought is right.

Yeah, they charged me for a half hour labor.... not sure what it came out to as I bought some other things on the same ticket.

I had called 5 local dealers to see if they would do it and what they would charge. Not all of them had done it before but all 5 were willing to do it if I had the step-by-step instructions (which are on FTE). The closest dealer ended up being the easiest and cheapest and had done the change before.
Not a single one even hesitated on changing the fuel tank size.

Whole thing (me installing it & dealer size change) ended up being alot easier than I though it was going to be.

Has anyone used the Transfer flow? They are two to three hundred less. They are metal though. Don't know why that would be a problem and they are baffled.

Thanks

I had a Titan in my GMC, have one in the 350 and will have one in whatever the next truck is.

I did research the Transfer Flow, and comparing the two my preference is for the plastic. Aluminized steel is still steel, and subject to the effects of water if the coating is compromised. There is a reason why most OEM tanks are poly.

After the fact with both the GMC and 350, sloshing is only noticeable if you are really listing for it.

Another plus for the Titan when I got the first one was capacity. For the short bed GMC the Titan was 52 and the Transfer Flow was 40 IIRC.

Resale is something to think about. I don't know what the T-F tank would look like after several years. The Titan looked about the way it was when I installed it. When I sold the GMC I had several people contact me about the Titan. I probably could have gotten $600 (real offer) for it - half way towards a new tank.

I kept the 350's tank this time and will put it back in when this truck goes.

I saved my fuel tank adjustment for a day when the truck was in the shop anyway for something else that required the computer to be hooked up.
I gave them the "step by step" and they did it at no charge. And I didn't charge them for them for the OJT.
