Who has done the hutch mod?

Who has done the hutch mod on their 6.0? Is it necessary like the 7.3? I have to drop the tank to replace the foot because the truck is running empty too early and I plan on doing the harpoon as well. I just don't know if I should replace the mixing chamber with the stainless lines. Any input is appreciated.

The 6.0 fuel system does not have the 7.3 chamber.

Thanks for the info. I didn't see any pics of what the 6.0 pickup looked like.

But if fuel storage increase is what your after it’s easily accomplished.

One tool makes it easy a hand squeeze pipe cutter. May have a name but here is my Rigid pipe cutter # RC- 2375

Once that top your gonna learn to hate is off reach in and snip off two vent pipes in rear of the tank close to top as possible.

DONE.

I get almost 35 gallons in my short bed 29 gallon tank I NEVER got 26 into.

My F 350 DRW with 8' bed holds about 40 gals. I can fill it all the way up the filler neck without the mod but it is an aggravating task.

The changing of the “ambulance fire avoidance” vent tubes is the “Harpoon” mod, applicable to all years.

The “Hutch” mod is the removal of the cold temperature mixing and filter chambers from the 7.3L tank.

the rash of Ford Ambulance fires were all gasoline if I recall correctly ? metal tanks ? But preventing joe user from overfilling his tank and not being able to put fuel into and above the pick up/ sender fitting and hose clamps is not a bad idea IMO

and leaving room for fuel expansion is not bad either


I did the harpoon and get over 50 gallons now


(I harpooned my Titan tank ;-)

I have the titan 51 gallon tank, and the one complaint I have about is the fuel gauge no longer works right. I can drive about a half tank before the needle goes below Full. Also, although I've never done this, rumor has that the after the low fuel light comes on, there's 10 gallons left. I've never filled up more than 35 gallons when I've driven it, so without an accurate gage I do not drive less than a quarter tank. To me the quarter tank is the new empty.

If anyone has a solution that's worked for them, I'd like to know. I've heard programming the PCM to a different size fuel tank does not work.

You are spot on with the gasoline trucks. My GM Master mechanic friend went into a data reading frenzy after he saw me pulling 4” of vent pipes out of the tank.

He even called the GM gods and the final answer was: Diesel don’t matter.
Gasoline expands and contracts wildly with change of temperature.

Toss cup of gas on street: temps climb changes from solid to gas in a minute. GONE

Toss a cup of diesel on street: it’s there for 30 years.

I have run low ( 3 times and thats was not true for me . I see miles to empty and low fuel are accurate last time i ran low put 49 gallons in
driving to the station i had one eye on the road one eye on the fuel psi and a hand on the ignition switch lol

it is just a slight annoyance to drive so far before the fuel gauge moves but i always have miles to empty displayed so i don't pay much attention
