I had to replace fuel filters every couple of months at 100.00 each since first purchased new in 2006. Finally, after researching through the internet, I found that the fuel tanks in this make of vehicle delaminates. After nuemerous close calls, on highway traffic, I called Ford to have the fuel tank repaired. Ford told me they could not do anything except replace the fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel injectors at cost. Finally, I replaced the fuel tank at a cost of 2000.00, and it now seem to be running fairly well. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

My 2000 Ford F350 Superduty loses almost all power and runs extremely rough and loud when the tank gets below a quarter tank of fuel. The truck runs pretty good when the tank is full or almost full (above half a tank). Solution at this time is to keep a lot of fuel in the tank. My truck has 340,000 miles at this time. I have heard of a solution to clean the tank and remove some of the parts from the existing filter in the tank that get clogged (and have nothing with making the truck run) and place an inline fuel filter along the frame which makes it easy to remove and replace. I am ready to remedy this problem since I want to keep this truck forever. Any help would be appreciated!

I have the same problem with my truck. I'm taking the tank off scraping the delamination from inside the tank, taking the 2 little filters off from the sending unit, clean the exterior filter and re-assemble . hope that will stop the problem
