Rust in fuel system 06' F-350 SD 6.0 diesel

I have an 06' F-350 w/6.0L Diesel that has clogged the fuel filter up with rust and wiped out multiple injectors. The truck is only 1.5 yrs old and has 19K miles, how does this happen? Where does the rust come from?

The dealer says it is not warranty because it is contaminated fuel from the gas station, but to think that much rust came from the fuel station everyone would be having the same problems that fill up there.

The truck does have an auxilary 100 gal aluminum tank in the bed too. Locking gas caps.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you the only one that fuels the truck? Is the primary tank on your truck metal or plastic? If it's metal I'd make them pull the tank to check and see if the inner liner on the tank broke down.

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.

Some dealers are clueless, they told you that the fuel was contaminated?, No DUH, the questions is why? A good dealer would look at the fuel filters, and drop the tank to check the lining. Not casually ignoring you and the situation. This is a case of improper customer service. I would be adamant about them proving that this isn't warrantable, make a stink if you have to, they WILL budge.
