I always leave mine running while I fuel up . I've never had any issues with it.

when it was cold up north I would leave my truck running but down south I will shut the truck off. I don't see the reason down south. I think that the temp mater the most when leaving your truck running

I got the "Gremlin" fuel gauge in my 03 so I have to turn it off. The key has to be in the off position and the door closed. Why??? If I don't no matter how much fuel I put in it the needle stays @ E. It will go up eventually but it really bothers me, the dealer couldn't fix it, so I just shut it down.

I always shut mine off. I also drive a 2006 Ford crown vic police and if we dont turn off the engine we sometimes get a cel light. Ford tells us the car does an automatic leak test on the tank at 1/4 and 3/4 to make sure tank doest have a leak and the sensors act goofy when you are filling up. The dealership likes it because they charge the city big $$$ to clear the codes. Does anyone know if the superdutys have the same kind of set-up with the fuel tank???

Never had any problem putting fuel in my 06 F350 while it's running.

Don't know about filling it all the way up. I'm still waiting for the bank to approve the loan...

I never turn my truck off while fueling, or for that matter It is on for days stright. I had it run constintly for 2 tanks of fuel while plowing, and never got a CEL, and for a few minutes i had left the cap off and drove away! I felt stupid. but it only happened once and I had been up for 3 days stright!
