SOURCE: front tank sputters and truck dies

It definitely has something to do with the fuel flow from the front tank. It may be the fuel pump again, the older F-150's with two tanks soemtimes have problems with the fuel pumps because of the extra pull from two tanks, and the switching between them.

You could check the fuel filter (assuming there are two fuel filters, one for each tank)...but otherwise it sounds like a fuel pump problem, or possibly an obstruction in the switching mechanism for the two tanks, or an obstruction in the line itself. Hope that helps!

SOURCE: when I switch from my front fuel tank to my rear tank gas stops

There is no selector valve on a 1995 ford f150 300 engine. The selector switch on the dash sends power to the pump in the selected tank. The pump then sends fuel to the engine. If engine won't run on the selected switch, the pump in that tank needs replaced.

Go to the auto parts and get a container of Heat fuel treatment and get a new fuel filter also. Then pour in the proper amount of fuel treatment and change the fuel filter. This should fix your problem. Also when was the last time you changed the air filter. This would help it run better and increase your mileage.

Turn the ignition switch to run, without starting it. You should hear the electric fuel pump, in the gas tank, run for about 3 to 4 seconds, until it builds to proper pressure. If it is not humming along it needs replaced.

You need to take it in and have them clean you fuel system and fuel tank, or the problem could get worse and cost alot in the long run.
