At a loss don't know what to do or were to start. any and all help would be appreciated.
My 2002 F-250 had the same problem, but at around 1/4 tank of fuel. I thought It had a bad sender in the fuel tank, because I was running out of fuel at 1/4 tank. When I dropped the tank, I saw the plug in the side of the pick up tube fell out, and was laying in the bottom of the tank! I snapped it back in, and staked it with a red hot piece of metal so it wouldn't do it again. I have no idea why they made them like that! It's like when you bend & crack a straw as you insert it in the lid. You can only drink down to the level of the crack, then it just sucks air. Maybe the pick up screen on the fuel pick up is plugged?
