All you would have to do is find the Fuel-Line joining the rear tank with the rest of the tank and cut it and plug it, or shorten it down as far as is desired and then plug it.

Assuming you have a switch to choose between tanks and stuff, depending on the age of the vehicle, you should have no problem with it.

Gas leaking from my tank switch


Use compression barb fittings on the pressure side with fuel injection line NOT REGULAR FUEL HOSE THE REGULAR HOSE WONT HOLD UP TO THE PRESSURE. The return line can be regular fuel line because of the low pressure.

My 1993 mercury tracer has a fuel leak


first locate approx area of leak, wet spot, smell. fuel lines run from top of tank in rear of vehicle to the front usually alomg the inside frame rail on drivers side and up into engine compartment (under the hood) to the back of the motor. it runs into fuel rail assy where the injectors are passing through a fuel regulator first. fuel line will have a valve similar to that on a bicycle or car tire and should have a tag on it, sometimes its on the fuel rail. trace the fuel line tu the fuel tank or from the tank to engine compartment while its running, in park with emergency/parking brake on to accurately locate leak but be careful for fuel that may be spraying. i recomend safety glasses and a flashlight. most common leaks are due to worn/bad seals in the "quick connect" connections or a crack it the line itself.

Can't use front tank. i fill the rear tank, front tank eventually fills up. switch to front tank, it'll run for about 5 minutes then stall. then i switch to rear...fine. why is the front tank filling up...


Ok sounds like a electrical problem being an 89 its fuel injected eather 5.0 or 5.8 each tank has its own fuel pump and sending unit a dashboard switch, relay, fuse and switching motor. check your fuel line from the front tank it could be clogged. check for 12v pwr. to the front pump the sending unit will require 4V but not much. as soon as the fuel rail pressureizes the ECM shuts the pump off using the relay. Usually the tank switch goes bad first.

My 89 Ford F150 dies when I switch fuel tanks from rear to front tank,and now leaks gas some where in the area of the side front tank when Iam running on the rear tank.Where do I begin?


Does you truck restart after dying and then run ok or does it stay dead until switching back to the rear tank?
It could be that the front tank has a leak in the suction line which will leak when not in use and **** air when you switch to it.
A suction air leak could be the reason for it dying when switching tanks

Rear heater not getting hot after by-passing front heater core which is leaking.


Hi:
Your vehicle only has one set of connections to the heating system, and you disconnected them when you bypassed the heater core. There is not a seperate heater core for the rear heat, just ducts off of the front heat.

Fuel leaks from rear tank to front.


The leaking from one tank to another was covered by a recall from Ford. Not sure if they still foot the bill for installation of the required check valves. These are still available from the dealership. The rear one is the hardest to install. The check valve can be installed without pulling the rear tank. As for your front sender I would clean all of the connections to the sender and make sure it has a decent ground. If it still only reads at the 1/4 tank level you will have to replace the sender to rectify the problem.

F150 dual fuel tank problem


I have to say i'm only guessing, but it sounds like the valve that switches the flow of gas from one tank to the other must be sticking part way open, or bypassing or something, and anything your engine doesn't require, is being returned to the front tank, instead of the rear.
