Fuel tank delamination...

Hey gang, I just tore apart my '03 E350 7.3 fuel system today and found the tank delaminating. Has anyone with a SMB had a similar problem? Starving for fuel intermittently? Sluggish on hills, etc...

Thanks, GL.

There are a lot of E series tank de-lamination issues out there. This is found on the Ford factory tank, not the aftermarket tanks. Check out www.thedieselstop.com in the van section. You should be able to find more info there.

Re: Fuel tank delamination...

I believe the older after market tanks also had the trouble. There was a large thread several years back on the SMB owners group that Tranfer Flow(?) had made some changes. Think it was Tony Stein that made the post but that was way back, possibly pre 2006.
You might check the archives there
