Question about 1989 Ford F 250
I HAVE A1989 F250 THAT RAN OUT OF GAS ON THE REAR TANK I SWICHED IT TO THE FRONT TANK AND IT ONLY GOT ME 1/2 A MILE THEN IT JUST QUIT BOTH VACUM AND ELECTRIC PUMPS ARE WORKING
If your front tank was much less than 1/2 full you may have a bad pump in the front tank. each tank has a low pressure pump that feeds the high pressure pump on the frame rail. If the pump in the tank is bad, the high pressure pump will draw gas from the tank (especially the front tank) until the tank get below 1/2 full then it loses its prime and the engine will stall. Try disconnecting the electrical connection at the high pressure pump on the rail and then cycle the key on and off and see if you can detect the tank pump running or not.

I would look at the fuel filter and follow the fuel line to see if there is an inline filter. then I would check to see that any rubber fuel are in good condition and are not collapsed inside or plugged. I ould also check the gas in the side tank if it hasn't been used for some time.
