More Titan tank questions

I am finally getting around to buying the 60 gal. tank for my '08 X-Cab. The Titan web site (FAQ?s for TITAN Large Capacity Replacement Diesel Fuel Tanks:) states "analog fuel gauge will work the same" 03silverTJ had stated above "gauge is not accurate until the original fuel (full) quantity." Is that because Ford does not use analog gauges? Or is there a fix to correct this indicating problem?

My second question is regarding tank foaming. Currently I can add 3.5 gals more after fuel pump auto shut-off activates. The foaming problem seems particulate bad on Fords. Do the Titan tanks foam as bad as the original fuel tanks?

The DIC will not work, but there maybe fixes in the future, according to the the Titan site. I can only hope.

Thanks

Yeah, it still foams and sloshes out if you're not careful. The guage works OK once you adjust to it. It just stays on full for a long time then starts down. When it gets to E you are pretty much empty at the tank. My "50 Miles to empty" light comes on with about 120 miles left, then goes out and comes back at what seems like an appropriate time. I'm told by lots of folks that it's not wise to run these trucks too low because of the senseitivity of the fuel system. So, I try to never get below 10 gallons left.

I had a high pressure pump problem and Ford said if my tank in back was hooked up they would void warranty.

Yeah, I took notice of that when you posted it. Don't know what my reaction to that would be. Given the price of that repair I think they would have been dealing with my lawyer. Of course I only use my truck for pleasure trips and I could afford to let it sit while they fought it out. If they could show me some fiber glass in the system I guess I'd pay and shut up. If they have water I guess it's the last place I got fuel or my insurance company. Many of these repairs are so pricey now that I just wouldn't take a turn down without a fight unless they could convince me I caused the problem.

They stated it was due to air getting in the sytem on change over, they stated it takes very little air to total the high pressure pump & fuel system.

Well, that don't sound right to me. Are they saying Ford designed and sold a couple hundred thousand trucks knowing that if anyone ran out of fuel they would trash a 10,000 dollar fuel system. I don't know how air wouldn't have gotten in mine. I had to remove the pick up tubes and re-install in the new tank. As I recall it was a pretty low tech deal. I just dropped the stock tank, removed the sending unit and pick up tube, poured the fuel from the stock into the new tank, re installed the pick up stuff and bolted everything back together. I never had a clue I was flirting with a 10 grand repair.LOL. I don't think anyone would sell after market tanks if it was that critical. Unless they warned the consumer about the air in fuel issue seems like it would come back to them. Besides, when we cycle the key six times after changing the fuel filter aren't we bleeding the air out back through the tank. Wouldn't it do the same thing if air got in while you hooked up your tank? Nah, I gotta throw the BS flag on that one. I don't doubt they said that but I'm not buying. I'd like to hear Cheezit's opinion on that one.

Air introduced into the system and not purged means a dry fuel pump when cranking. I think that is what they are alluding too.

But how could they prove that one?

Thanks for all the input.
I'm going to go to the dealer and have them point out the specifics (in writing) on my warranty. What is and is not covered if I upgrade to a Titan. I'll keep you posted.

grende,

I apologize that I wasn't around to answer your questions! It seems that fellow forum members stepped in and helped me out though. So tell me did you ever get the Titan tank?

I still love mine. I'd say I have only two complaints.

A. Not being able to adjust the fuel tank size in the PCM that way the DIC reads correctly for miles to empty.

Unless this has changed... Anyone know?

B. The tank is SO long that if I park the truck in the driveway overnight facing downhill the fuel gauge (analog) will read empty, or if I park facing up hill it reads full.

This isn't too much of an issue with me because I know it will sort itself out in about 10-15 min of run time. However if someone uses my truck who is unfamiliar with this anomaly it may panic them a bit.

I have had no problems with it at all. Regarding to the foaming, yes it still foams, just have to go slow when you are reaching the top.


Bounds,

I am curious about this. I was considering a Transfer-flow in bed tank/tool box combo. From what I can tell the transfer-flow system isn't plumed into your fuel lines, you just use it to fill the factory tank.

What type of system do you have?
