Question about 2003 Ford Excursion
Engine light is on, Overdrive light blinks on stalk, engine will not idle unless rpms are increased, will not idle and shuts off, idle motor replaced about 4000 miles caar has 174k mileage, BTW, I stopped for gas yesterday, put in four gallons, filled some 5 gallon gas cans for mower, i was told that the gas in the cans was milky white that was being poured into the mower. The Excursion was 1.5 quarts low oil and I added additional 5 gallons fresh gas, no change in performance. Car is equipped v-10 automatic
Check if you use e-mix fuel
if that is the case , put a bottle of methylated sprirts in the fuel tank to mix with the water from the e-mix fuel and then after running the fuel out, refill with normal fuel and a quality injector cleaner

SOURCE: filling gas tank
There is a vent pipe that runs along the fill pipe, they get kinked and cause this concern (tank can't vent air when filling), the only fix is to replace the fill pipe assembly.

If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

You could fill the tires with Nitrogen but it will cost about $15 a tire. You will gain 1.5 - 2 miles more a gallon. Big trucks were made for pulling and hualing only. If your looking at gas mileage then you need a focus.
