Fuel tank Harpoon on older Super Dutys as well?

Check the search and couldn't find any related to the pre 2003 Superdutys and the search feature on here is hard to use to say the least.

Friend just bought a 2001 7.3 F-350 and is disgusted when I can go 100 or mor miles on a tank full of fuel with the exactly same size tank. It's ticked him off more the once even when I have had a slightly heavier load.

Is the tank mod exactly the same as it would be on the 2004? Is their anything to look out for or not do on the 01's?

Thanks!

Yes, harpoon mod will work for him.

It does not give you any extra capacity in the tank, just the ability to fill it to the neck without the automatic pump shutoff kicking in too soon. Without the mod he can still fill his tank to capacity just like you, it will take him much much longer to trickle the last 3-4 gallons in.

Yup, he just needed some more proof I guess? Go figure I thought everyone would listen to me?
