1996 F250 7.3 Powerstroke


Asked by mnicosia Apr 08, 2019 at 07:26 AM about the 1996 Ford F-250

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1996 F250 7.3 Powerstroke with duel tanks.  My gas gauge now is
stuck WAY past full and when I switch from tank to tank it stays on the first tank.  
Is this just as simple as a blown fuse or am I looking at something more?

23 year old vehicles always need service.. mostly likely a fuel sending unit has said its game over.


This may be a stupid question, but would the sending unit account for the switch not changing the fuel draw from the front tank to the rear? The problem started when I tried to change tanks while driving to work. The only thing that happened was the gas gauge cranking way up but it didn't start drawing from the rear tank.
