1995 F150. Two gas tanks. Are they connected?


Asked by Aug 26, 2014 at 08:50 PM about the 1995 Ford F-150 XL LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Well, there's a cut in the fuel filler hose on my front tank, so I haven't been filling it up.
Instead I fill up the back tank. Somehow my front tank ends up getting over full to the point
that it's leaking gas out of the cut in the fuel filler hose. So my question is am I filling up
the front tank through the back tank???

The only way it can do this is,if the actuator is stuck open ,meaning the flipper is open,making it go threw line to other tank.

Of course it could be rednecked together?


You have a bad check or shuttle valve inside the Ford F150s manufactured in 1995 use an in-tank fuel delivery module, or FDM, that includes a high pressure pump, a venture pump, a pressure relief valve and shuttle

Sounds rednecked too me too T S T . But there could be a stuck fuel tank switching valve allowing unused fuel getting returned to the front tank instead of the rear tank that it is pumped from. So in a round about way you are filling the front from the rear when the engine is running.
