Question on extended range tanks

Someone posted a reply to a question about having the "miles until empty" information on the truck computer modified, stating that Ford has an ECU flash that lets the fuel management system know that there is now a greater fuel capacity with the after market tank. Can someone let me know what that code is so I can help my dealer find and install it? Thanks in advance for your help.

Great info, but to do this do I need a tech-II. So should I just bring this info to the dealer?

Don't know.

I printed this out, handed it to the dealer and they said thanks - we didn't know we could do this.

Thanks,
Duane
