Check with your local ford dealership, There was a recall for the fuel transferring to the rear tank. If you remove the rear tank you MUST join the two rear lines together

Taking the rear tank out is not a big problem, but the fuel from the front tank to the rear needs to addressed, you will have to totally bypass the fuel tank switching valve in the frame or you will be leaking fuel out the rear fuel tank return line. A parts store might be able to locate some fuel line connectors that will help with switching it to a single tank, you will have to rewire the fuel pump wiring for just the front tank and sender or just leave in the switching valve for only the pump and sender and make sure you block the switch on the dash so it stays on the front tank.

I'm glad I came across this was fixing to take rear gas tank out but didn't know all this.. It can stay with no gas until I fix the little leak it has because that sound like a lot of witching things around... Thanks

2/04/17 permanently removed rear gas tank and stopped leaking & gas transfer problems 4 ever!!! 92 F150 4.9 6 cyl 1. drop rear tank(pain in ass, lines not long enough to drop to ground, Instead of disconnecting rusty non-disconnecting lines, I took pliers and broke tubes off of fuel pump and capped tubes with rubber hose, a bolt in other end and hose clamps, I capped both fuel lines and breather tube the same way and disconnected the wire connector and tied them all up securely to the frame. The truck runs great the gauge works great and no more gas leaks!! No rewiring or rerouting of lines. Drive truck daily on street and highway no problems at all
