The truck is acting like it is starving for gas although i have alrready replaced the in tank fuel pump.


Have you checked to make sure the fuel filter isn't clogged (in fact, check all the filters). Sometimes it's really that simple . . .

1988 ford xlt lariat 4x4 need to see how to route my fuel lines ,dual tanks


The original gas tank on a 1998 F-250 Lariat has a capacity of 30 gallons. Because there is no mention of dual fuel tank capacity available, the 2nd fuel tank was likely added after purchase. You would need to know the capacity of the fuel tank when it was installed. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have dual tanks, like I have, the there is a mechanical fuel selector valve that both tanks hook to. When it fails, it usually fails so you can't get fuel out of the front tank. If you haven't tried yet, put some fuel in the back tank and give it a try. If the truck runs again, you need to swap out the shuttle valve.

Dual tanks on 1990 Ford F150


It should not cause no problems but instead of removing the tank leave it in the truck take out all the fuel in the tank and jus discontinue use of it. This will save you alot of time and trouble and i also suggest that if anyone besides you drives this vehicle then i would put a locking gas cap on it so it cant be accessed at anytime except by you.

It uses too much fuel. 2,6 liter per 10 km.


You need to replace the sensors,,Throttle PositioningSensor, OXYGEN sensors, Mass Air Flow. after which your truck will run nicer and use less fuel.
