100,000 miles

Nothing spectacular but I just rolled over 100,000 miles yesterday while pulling my 15,000 pound fiver. Today the truck pulls just like it did yesterday. It's as strong as it ever was. Only replaced one radiator and one egr on this engine. I'm on my second set of Goodyears but need another set soon. Oil replaced every 5000 miles fuel filters every 10,000 miles. Replaced air filter at 50,000 miles and again today. One windshield replaced along the way. Original manual transmission, clutch, and brakes.

Had oil sampled by Blackstone along the way. Engine always shows higher than normal wear metals, probably because it's always hooked up to the fiver, and it usually has 2-4 % fuel in the oil.

My wear metals are always a bit higher for the same reason.

Good show!

Great positive story! That should give some of us some hope to be able to join the 100K club.

And if I may point out the Titan fuel tank in which some were noticing to be a common denominator for HPFP failures.

Yeah no problem with my Titan tank. If I ever buy another truck that will be one of the first mods. It's amazing how much $ you can save with the Internet to find best prices along your journey and an extra big fuel tank.

Thanks for the encouraging post! I love hearing the 'good' things about our trucks....
Not to derail the thread but, is it the condensation in the tank when it is not full that is causing water to ruin the HPFP?

Shouldn't be, the tanks made of some sort of composit plastic. I've had no problems with mine in 50,000 miles.

Even plastic tanks can get condensation.

Just sitting there, the temperature changes and air will move in or out of the tank.

Air has humidity.

In Georgia air has a lot of humidity.

That's the reason I asked the question and the reason I try to keep all diesel tanks as full as possible, to reduce the amount of condensation. Just wondered if anyone else did the same.

A good invention would be to use a sealed fuel cap, and run a 1/4" vent hose, where the hose end flows air over an AC cooled heat exchanger, and has a small rubber bladder.

When the vehicle runs, it would freeze that heat exchanger, then allow air to freely enter into the fuel tank, once dried.

When the vehicle is sitting, it would expand and contract air into that bladder.

I'll throw in my 2 cents and share my doubts that the Titan tank has anything to do with any HPFP failures. I think it would be smarter to note that almost everyone that has a Titan tank puts lots of miles on their trucks. Over these miles I'd say it's quite likely that they've come across some crap fuel at a random station that lead to the HPFP failure. That to me would make a lot more sense. I know it's just what you've heard and is their thought but I wanted to point out the other side to that coin. Thanks

And congrats to the OP on the milestone. Hopefully you can post the same great review when you hit 200K!!

I don't doubt that one bit. I was just repeating what the blue oval folks have said in looking for an excuse. I am sure more than a couple of in ground tanks have water leaking into them.
AS for the OP, my work truck('08 F450 6.4L) made it to 114K and then lost the engine due to a bad oil cooler. The truck averaged a little over 20mph during its life. AS you can tell it idled A LOT and took a lot of abuse. Still very proud of it. If you had a way to convert the time to mileage, I am very sure it would be nearing, if not more than 200k of run time. I still love the 6.4s.
