yup, thats what mine did when the injectors started going south.
Check your oil level before you drive it very far like that. If you see the level rising, DON'T DRIVE IT anymore. Tow it to the dealer or drive it only if it is a very short trip. Ford should pay for towing it if it's under warranty and if you explain whats happening. If they know there is fuel leaking into the crank case, they won't want you driving it either!

also before you drive it today, reset your avg MPG fuel meter, if you have injectors leaking, it will reflect a drop in fuel milage.

Are you still under warranty? If you take it in to the dealer, don't forget to take off that Bullydog!!

Well i started it this morning, It Didnt do it today for some reason. I did notice a drop in mpg the last trip i took to my home town, it droped about 3 mpg. Im trying to keep it safe. All i have one the rig right now is the 18k mod from dfuser. I realyl hope that this isnt the cause of it. But 2 days i went to fill up and noticed that when the fuel foamed it wasnt greedish yellow like normal, It was verry clear. So i might have gotten beepbeepbeepbeepty fuel. But would this cause injector failure? Im Thinking about just calling a tow truck to come get it and getting a retal for the time being. How long does it take to get Injectors replaced?

Don't jump the gun, if it's driving alright, you might have gotten bad fuel, who knows. I would pull codes before i called a tow truck. Did you check the engine oil level? was it normal?
See if there are any codes.

I checked the oil level, And it did seem atad bit higher then normal but it may have been do to me just getting done driving it an hour before checking the level. I called Ford to make sure that they will honer my warrenty, So im going to buy something to put in the tank to make the fuel better. Anyone have any ideas? Im going to hold out for a few days before i take it in. maybe its just bad fuel.

Put another 200 miles on er and then check the oil level again. See how she runs that whole time.
