SOURCE: when I switch from my front fuel tank to my rear tank gas stops

There is no selector valve on a 1995 ford f150 300 engine. The selector switch on the dash sends power to the pump in the selected tank. The pump then sends fuel to the engine. If engine won't run on the selected switch, the pump in that tank needs replaced.

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

1990 f150 gas goes from rear tank 2 front tank whats the problem

Hi, welcome to my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

They had a campaign back in 1990 where they replaced the fuel pressure regulators and installed one way check valves on both fuel tanks to prevent your concern.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

You need to check the switch on the dash for the tanks. Brown/White powers the REAR tank, Red powers the FRONT . RED/YELLOW is power, if there is no power on the red/yellow, check the "Inertia" switch. Matter of fact, check the Inertia switch FIRST. Its in the dash area near the brake pedal, maybe in the kick panel, it should be marked.

Back fuel pump is running all the time and is pumping fuel into front tank on a 1990 ford f150
