I doubt he has rusting in his tank or too much from the filler. Most of the pick-ups have plastic tanks, but not all. I would bet the particles are from where he gets his fuel.
Old Post from 2007:
Here is the broadcast message about the liner separation, no actually TSB number given...
Lack of Power, Trucks with Steel Tanks:
Some trucks may have a lack of power due to low fuel pressure from a plugged fuel filter or in-tank pickup tube, or restricted fuel lines. This could be caused by the steel tank lining becoming de-laminated/flaking off. If this occurs, the tank will need to be replaced, along with the plugged components. Be aware that using biodiesel with more than 5% concentration (B5) may cause this to happen. The replacement tanks do have a more resistant coating to help prevent this occurance, however Ford still recommends using no higher than B5 biodiesel. Broadcast Message 6865, 7103.
