White smoke,loss of power,dealer says dirty fuel clogged pistons and not covered

09 F250 40K miles, had fuel pump replaced, sensors replaces, reg replaced now dealer is saying contaminated fuel is the problem (so not covered under warranty) which has caused 3 pistons to become clogged - previously replaced 1 piston at 15k miles

Does this sound right? Anyone else have this issue

I have similar problems....smoke, loss of power at 2400 rpm under acceleration...radio just turns off randomly. Noticed it at 9500 miles. Now has 36000. They have replaced the exhaust sensors....not they are replacing the inter cooler. They tried the "bad fuel" card on me as well.

Did they ever check the EGR? I know that they get all filled up with carbon and make the trucks smoke and have a loss of power.
