Are there still HPFP issues?

I've read about these issues till I'm blue in the face.

the interesting part is that most of the threads are dated 2011 or so.

Has this issue been resolved or still exists in the 2012 and 2013 models?
Is the Bosch HPFP still being used and having issues or has it been replaced with a newer model/brand on the new Super Dudy F350's?

The story was that bad fuel (not high quality or water in fuel) or the lack of adequate fuel filtering was allowing rust to form in the pump and then it would start to self destruct and pass aluminum shavings throughout the intake system. Causing high dollar repairs and voiding the Ford warranty.

Any updates would be greatly appreciated? I'm planing on buying a new 2013 6.7L and this issue caused me concern.

You still see a thread that pops up from time to time. Mostly from new members that 1 post then they never post again. I have read probably 10 post about this issue....10 people out of over 500,000 trucks sold really isn't an issue.

I have a 2012 and it is nothing short of awesome, I think that the ones that experienced the fuel pump issue had installed an extra fuel tank on their trucks. One can draw any conclusion from that that they wish, I just returned from a 5k mile trip towing a 15k pound fifth wheel and I couldn't be more impressed with my truck.

I really don't think having a tidy tank had anything to do with HPFP's blowing up, not sure where you come up with that. I haven't filled my truck up from a regular pump since my first trip to work after picking it up and I haven't had an issue.

OP, I have been watching this issue too, and have seen the same pattern regarding the timing of issues. One would think changes were made to the system to improve its durability, but I have not seen anything that references any modifications by Bosch. It would be interesting to see a comment from Ford, but they may have quietly made changes to avoid the impression their system was faulty in some way.

Agreed, there many folks with Titan tanks (and others) with no issues. Most problems were contaminated fuel. US fuel standards are not as high as Europe, and Bosch did not accurately take this into consideration. GM has had issues too with Bosch.
