More than a fuel drip

I just bought this 2005 F350 Super Duty diesel King Ranch with only 80,000 miles and am loving it. But, the first time I fueled up the diesel poured out almost as fast as it went in. I crawled underneath and there's two valves (look like tire valves) on the fill hose where the fuel was coming out. Quick fix was caps on the valves which allowed for filling but they fell off on the drive home. Anybody else had this problem or have suggestions?

I think the previous owner owner had an aux fuel tank on your truck. The quick fix would be a a short U shaped hose between the ports and some clamps. The best fix would be a new filler neck from Ford.



EDIT: Can you install a tire core into the ports to plug them off??

The valve stem core is there, in both valves. Thinking for now the loop of clamped fuel hose between them will work. Thanks for these suggestions.

Yup looks just like an aux fuel tank hookup. He probably had a bed mounted Aux tank. Bottom port would run up to the Aux tank pump to fill and the top port is for pressure ventalation (also went back to the aux tank).

You can either pull the bungs (if they're not welded in) and just put a plug in them or like Ham said, I'd just buy a foot long piece of fuel line and 2 hose clamps and just loop em up for now. Could always just toss in a plug and a quick weld to seal them up permanently.
