07 Fuel tank problems

Hey everyone... I have a 2007 F-450 with about 45k on it, I noticed a power loss and decided to make an appointment with the dealer, the day of my appointment the truck wouldnt stay running it would run for a few min then die out so I ended up towing it in...

I just got a call from the dealer saying my fuel tank is bad and the inside of it pretty much fell apart, he told me he has seen this many times before but yet ford wont warranty it. I was told i need a new tank, fuel lines, filters and one injector.

Has anyone heard of this problem or had this problem before??? they want
$ 2,700 to fix it!

I gotta say I love my 2000 7.3l

Happy Holidays to everyone

Holy Crap! That sucks! I would do a search on the web to see how many other guys have had the issue, and start emailing Ford in every way you can think of to complain and see if they plan to warranty it, or repay you for the work after the fact. That really sucks... Sorry to hear it.

Get a second opinion. The fuel filter should have prevented anything from doing too much damage although you may have done the injectors some harm if you oprated for very long w/ a plugged filter. You should be able to do the tank and lines yourself (if in fact you need a new tank). Ford is somewhat correct - there are some steel tanks that delaminate, but usually because of high biodiesel content or bad fuel IIRC. Do you keep fuel receipts so that you might see if the supplier will take some responsibility?

my tank has failed too!

I have a 07 and at 45000 started to pick up trash,small white flakes.I can go 6000 miles before i have to change filters.Does anyone reline the tank or replace it?Is the titan tank aftermarket?

I have a Titan 52 gallon on order from XDP for my '07 F250 shortbed. They had a sale before the end of the year, a discount and free shipping. I think you could get the tank (about $900) installed for less than half what the dealer wants to put in the stocker. Other larger tanks cost even less.

I thought the stock tank was plastic and not metal. Is this correct?
