Switch at dash I believe, and gauge should read level of whatever tank your on, if working correctly.

Why is gas shooting out of gas cap?

you have 2 options
1--- put the fuel return line into the tank you are using
2--- install a balance line between tank 1 and tank 2 so that the fuel back to tank1 is allowed to balance back into tank 2

properly set up the tanks should be connected so that the fuel gauge reads the total fuel in the tanks and there is a need for only one fuel pump

Fuel is being pushed from Front tank to rear tank until it is empty and then wont start off front tank or rear tank and have to put gas into front tank to restart truck

ford had a recall for this in 88-89. the recall was for a defective changeover valve mounted on the drivers frame rail. check to see if it has a small galvanized valve or the larger black one. if it still has the black one. its a bad valve. return from pump is pumpingf fuel to the oposite tank. go to a junk yard and find one with the newer valve is your best bet. or use on tank like i am. i disconnected my rear tank. still have,nt figured out how to wire my gas guage though. hope this helps someone.
