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

How do I rewire fuel tank to operate front tank only, after completely removing rear tank?
