Fuel tank

How many gallons of fuel should a 04 F350 4 x4 hold stock? I've been told 32 and 35. I ran it almost empty one y and filled it up to the top and looked at the price and just about messed my self when I looked and the tank took 42.7gallons. I bet I problem had 5gallong left in the tank. My fuel gage works about half the time. So I really run it that low.and haven't since. That day.
How hard is it to fix the fuel gadge? Has any one had to fix there's?

Fixing the fuel gauge isn't that bad if you have help. There are two methods. The first is the easiest if you have four friends, take the bed off. The sending unit is on top of the tank and that is the usual failure point. The second method, drain and drop the tank then replace it. I if course prefer the first. The only problem us that the bed is heavy and awkward, but it is much easier than dropping the tank.

Ok looks like the beds coming off....lol my truck is a long bed so with knowing that I put over38 gallons in it I'm wondering if someone messed up the sending unit when the changed the tank.
What would I need to drop the tank ?

It's still common hand tools. I've never changed a sending unit that way but I'm pretty sure you simply take the straps off and lower it down, disconnecting hoses and wires as you can get to them.
