here is where i read about it Check Engine Light on with P0460 Fuel Level Sensor Code:
This may be caused by a miscommunication of fuel level ststus between the instrument cluster and engine computer. This code is set when the engine computer does not see the fuel level dropping it expects. It may be caused by customer-installed items, such as a remote start system that does not power the dash when activated, an over-sized fuel tank or in-bed fuel tank. If these conditions do not exsist, the engine computer should be reprogrammed using WDS/IDS version 43.4 or higher. This condition can also be caused by fueling with the engine running, parking on an angle, or driving up a long grade. In some cases the fuel level sender may be faulty, or have a sulfur build up on the sender and have code P463(use Chevron Techron Plus Concentrate to correct). TSB 06-13-11

:: Waiting for the lawyer chick that posts on all of the fuel tank issue related threads advertising her law firm about some bogus lawsuit they have going against Ford for fuel tank problems to put her plug on this thread... ::

Was searching for info on Techron in diesels myself when I ran across your thread. Continuing my search, I ran across a few articles and one interesting related ad says Techron Concentrate Plus is OK for use in direct and in-direct injection diesels and mentions sulfur deposits. It doesn't specifically say it'll fix your issue, but it looks likie it's a safe try anyway. Chevron Introduces TECHRON Concentrate Plus - Science News - redOrbit

In the Audi community there are discussions of people fixing fuel sender problems by running a couple of bottles of Techron through a tank of gas. I have not personally tried it, but I have read more than a few post about it.
