2005 f250 diesel died

Hey guys, I have a 2005 F250 diesel with 95K on it. Today on my way to work the truck died when I accelerated to get on the freeway. It would not start after that. Like it was out of gas. It still showed a quarter of a tank?? Any ideas. Has this happen to anyone else? I also have not seen the low fuel light come on in awhile.
Thanks for any ideas.

Guess that means the gauge is wrong. Maybe the sender is bad.

Actually sounds like your sending unit foot is off the end of the sending unit. It is is you will read around a quarter of a tank and run out. The foot is about 33 inches or so and sits on the bottom of the tank. I did the harpoon mod on my tank and noticed mine was on the bottom as well.

Thanks Frakchered. How would I fix it? Is it as simple as dropping the tank opening up and reattach?
Thanks

If it is still in one piece yeah, just as simple as you stated. But the type of material the foot is is like a rubber/plastic, and it sits in fuel for its entire life and mine was brittle and broke. Stealership is where I was able to find mine, and I did find one on a website. I can't remember the price. If your dropping the tank, do the harpoon mod and just replace the foot. And be careful and use a long board and to not use a jack on the tank by itself!
