6.4 HPFP Failure No Warranty

Long story short my 6.4's fuel was contaminated with dirt, probably from pumping fuel at a gas station somewhere. My fuel filters and oil are changed at frequent intervals. A couple dealerships want $9,000 to replace every component in the fuel system. It's not Ford's fault, it's not my fault, its a gas stations fault, as I was told. I think an engineering failure exists as under normal operating conditions and fuel pumping the truck self destructed in 1,500 miles. Insurance also will not cover this.

Frequent Ford advertisements depict Ford trucks as being badass work machines. But I cant even pump fuel into my Ferd F-Teen Thousand and get it down the road.

I'm going to clean the tank out myself, replace the filters, and try to blowout/clean every component I can.
If the problem persists, at the least I will have to replace the HPFP assembly and pull the engine through the front end. I bought a superpremium warranty for several thousand dollars and I feel that it is useless as I was charged $250 for diagnostics and my truck is parked. I AM NOT A SATISFIED CUSTOMER.

I most certainly feel shafted by Ford, and rest assured if I have to pull the Powerstroke engine out, a mechanical Cummins is going in.

Called up the insurance company. If I wanted to file a claim they would send someone out to look at it for $$$ and most likely not cover it.

We've had insurance pay for several trucks with contaminated fuel. If you had receipts for your fuel then the insurance company would go after the gas station.

I save every fuel receipt, it doesn't matter if i pump 5 gallons, or 25 gallons into my trucks fuel tank. Just for this very reason. If i get some contaminated fuel, i'm going straight to the station that i filled up at. i have fuel receipts from 12 months ago. It's just something i do for piece of mind, and when the receipt wont print at the pump, i walk inside and have one printed no matter how much of a rush i am in. I hope you get this worked out. $9K is a boat load to fork out for a new fuel system.. let us know how it goes. best of luck.

I bought the truck used, its only worth about 15k now. Its a single cab XL, So 9 grand to fix it seems ridiculous. Ill be more careful when pumping fuel now...

Something seems weird. First post says insurance won't cover it but then u says insurance hasn't looked at it because that would cost money. I would rather pay the insurance company the little $$ versus 9k for everything that's fuel related on the truck.

When u get it fixed, only buy diesel from stations that sell alot. Going to the little store at the end of the road with one diesel pump at the back of the lot isn't good because their diesel sits longer. Sitting longer means its got more chances for water to be in it and also dirt because they may not fill diesel up all the time so it could be pulling from. The bottom.

I contacted my insurance company, and was told that if I filed a claim they would send someone to come out and look at the truck for $$$. I was also told there was a very good chance the claim would be denied.

If I file the claim ill be out of pocket for the inspection and my rates will probably go up, as I was also told by the insurance spokesperson. The chances of insurance covering the repairs are slim to none, especially because I am not exactly sure where the bad gas was pumped.

Therefore the insurance company is out of the picture.
