I have filled my 2013 F250's tank at least ten times now. There has never been a time that I have put more than 30 gallons in the tank. Even today I was on E and the lie-o-meter said 12 miles until E. New gas Super Duties are supposed to have a 35 gallon tank. Are there still 5 more gallons at E? I don't think a 30 gal diesel tank would work for a gasser would it? I really don't want to run it dry to find out if I really have a 35 gallon.
My 2011 F250 CCSB has a 35 gal tank. I never put more than 33 in it and there was still " 25-30 miles to go" according to the on board instrumentation. I generally go with the rule of thumb of 1/4 of a tank while towing or general highway driving, start looking. Around the town, 1/8 of a tank time to get some fuel.
My wife is ignore all indicators for low fuel. Wait until E. Then get fuel. My Explorer has a 22 gallon tank and it has never taken more than 20.5 gallons with the needle on E.

I thought the approx. 5 gallons after E was to help keep the fuel pump cool in the tank?
What is a Veteran?
A "Veteran" - whether active duty, discharged, retired or reserve- is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to, and including their life."
That is honor. And there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact.
