2011 F-450 Fuel Tank Deteriorated??

Hi guys! I thought this issue was resolved? Im a fleet manager and just got a request to approve a fuel tank. I was told once that the 2003-2007 "fleet only" trucks had this issue? A $2500 a pop somebody is getting rich and it aint me.

Aft-of-axle tanks are notorious for this, ive seen it on 2011's. You're better off getting it relaminated. The dealer i work for charges 500$ for the laminated tank and an hour or 2 labor.

Who relaminates the tank? I didn't know this was an option. I had problems a couple years ago getting tanks because ford cut ties with the manufacture that was building tanks for the 6.0 trucks or something and there was a huge issue with delaminating. Seems like there should be a way to build a tank that won't do this.

Yeah, if you buy a new ford tank, i think its around 1,300$ for the part and in a few years it will still corrode. We sent an old tank off to an independant guy that puts some hardcore coating on the inside, and keep it in stock, then rotate it when we need it. I'd try calling around your local area for someone that'll offer that sort of service, to be honest, I dont know who the hell parts dept. is sending them to
