my 2009 f250 gas gauge = POS

what is wrong with ford? This is the second time I have ran out of gas . First time the mpg thing said 60 till empty no warnings or nothing.

This time showed 105 miles till empty ran out of gas again !

Worst part is the thing wont FUC**NG start when you put more diesel in it ! Do i have to call the dealer again and pay these idiots for a problem that is caused by this truck ?

I know its not just mine,. my buddies does this too, can you not go under half a tank without concern to run out of gas and not be able to start it again?

I have had this happen as well. It will eventually start once you get fuel in it. My truck took about an hour of trying before it fired.

What seemed to get mine to start was priming the pump by cycling the key over and over. Then while cranking the truck over holding the gas peddle at about 1/4 throttle. This is also the procedure I used after having the cab off the truck and the entire fuel system drained.

Hope this helps! Good luck.

Ford fuel gauges suck. My sisters 07 was out of fuel under a half tank. Take it in under warranty.
