I would suggest the Equalizer valve for the Twin tanks has failed. Track the fuel supply and return lines to locate its position.

you have a bad dual tank switch valve might be staying in between tank switching causing the drain and lack of fuel issue.check fuel pressure under a load.

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.

Fuel tank ventilation


The vents are usually found in the filler neck of those ford dual tank units. They are designed for one way air release. Go to the dealership and pick the parts guys brain for the part number etc. and he will tell you where it is exactly. Then get the part and replace. Save a bundle. When you do the repair make sure you take all the neccessary precautions with any fuel repair.

1990 ford f150 cross over valve location


Please Help ME by Remembering to RATE ME Thank you Vrey Much !!!

This vehicle does not use an external fuel tank switching valve. A supply check valve in the fuel pump assembly opens when the outlet pressure from the energized fuel pump exceeds the opposing check valve spring force.


R E C A L L 1991
THE DUAL FUEL TANK SELECTOR VALVE MAY MALFUNCTION AND CAUSE AN OVERFILL CONDITION IN ONE OF THE FUEL TANKS, RESULTING IN AN OVERFLOW OF FUEL PAST THE FILLER CAP.
THE OVERFLOW OF FUEL PAST THE FILLER CAP CAUSES A FUEL LEAKAGE, WHICH CAN RESULT IN A FIRE WHEN EXPOSED TO A SOURCE OF IGNITION.
REPLACE THE DUAL FUEL TANK SELECTOR VALVE.
SYSTEM: FUEL TANK, AUXILIARY.
VANS AND LIGHT TRUCKS WITH DUAL FUEL TANKS PRODUCED IN THE FOLLOWING PERIODS: F150, F250, AND F350 LIGHT TRUCKS BUILT BETWEEN FEBRUARY 28, 1989 AND JULY, 1989; ECONOLINE BUILT BETWEEN FEBRUARY 28, 1989 AND FEBRUARY 11, 1991.
NOTE: FORD HAS AGREED TO RECALL THESE VEHICLES BUT PARTS ARE NOT YET AVAILABLE.PARTS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN DECEMBER 1991. YOU WILL RECEIVE A LETTER FROM FORD ADVISING YOU WHEN TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR DEALER TO HAVE THE RECALL WORK PERFORMED.

Gas tank filler hose on Ford E Super Duty Motor Home


Look again into the fuel filler there should be a metal hose which is where the tank gets it's air from, ensure when your filling up your not pushing the fuel filler gun fully home when filling up, suggest you don't fill the tank right up to the very top as your correct it's a big job & you will need parts before you take the tank off. http://passionford.com/forum
