|Snoho_98296||but did you feel performance issues before, rough running, stalling, etc ?|

I guess I'm just a gambler by nature... as Dewey Oxberger said in the movie Stripes.

|Snoho_98296||dillon134 - did you have the same type of fuel pressure issues as me ?|

|Ford06||Some of the early tanks had a lining that comes apart and causes problems. I didn't make it a point to remember when it stopped as it was changed prior to my trucks manufacture.|

My 07 F250 had the same problem. Sometimes it would display that the tank had plenty of gas in it, when in fact it was almost empty, and other times it would read empty when I had gas.
For what it's worth, I was advised to purchase some Diesel Kleen Octane Boost and, maybe it was coincidental, but the problem cleared up.
Could the Sending Unit have been gunked up and did the DK clean it up? Not sure, but it saved me from having to install a new sending unit, at least for now ;-)

Hi WDP - Thanks for the advice, I take it I should drain the fuel tank first ? never done this before...
I hope this is it, it would explain a lot of things...
Ford06 / sometimes the fuel gauge would jump up and down with no reason, sometimes it would show no fuel, when there is fuel, something funky is happening there, might as well isolate for it and keep on drilling, fingers crossed.
Question, if it is the fuel tank, is it recommended to just replace the pickup components and clean it up, or should I at that point, just buy a new tank ? I mean, my truck has 175K miles, this is a recent thing...

|Ford06||Does fuel level make a difference in how it runs? If so, it would definitely point to a pickup problem.|

Great idea, use a 5 gallon clearish jug, pull the two lines closest to the tank, use long 1/4 inch tubing, put into the jug and place on the passenger floor. Have a helper watch for bubbles, flow and see if that clears up the pressure problem. Good luck.

I had this problem before the Blue Spring upgrade, that's why I did it, thinking it would help it, but nothing...
Does a quick way exists to isolate the fuel tank to see if that is the culprit ? maybe disconnect the fuel lines and put them into a external fuel container ?

does some kind of a quick test /procedure exists to rule out the pickup in the fuel tank ?
and if so, what is that, any good youtube videos ?

As mentioned above, you might have an issue with the fuel pump pick-up tube in the fuel tank. It is a pain, but you might want to remove it and inspect.
Also, I would inspect the fuel pressure regulator spring/etc.
