Thanks for the feedback, I will research further on the factory Ford product or Titan product.

I dont work for Ford,...so your gonna have to dig out that answer.

I'm just saying,...it is not worth the risk. New Engine design....Why mess with it. I dont want or need and reason for anything under this new engine design to not be covered , if needed.



There is a warning about Aux tanks in the literature when I bought my 2011 F250. It states any aux fuel tank on the 6.7 diesel can and may cause water in the fuel and will void your warranty if repair is found to be associated. I am guessing they are referring to Bed mounted tabks...but it is not specific. So again,...why chance it?

That is what needs to be answered.

Just my humble opinion.

Seeing as how warranty claims for 6.7L engine destruction are being stonewalled by Ford on a few threads on a few Ford forums, I'd say you're right.

Better safe than sorry....In those example low lubricity or bad fuel will do it....Which makes sense to not cover it,......Not any Manufacturers fault if I get bad diesel. Which appears to be the case.

I'd agree only if other vehicles are similarly affected by that same fuel. Which does not appear to be the case thus far. I'm in full agreement about being cautious despite laws about aftermarket products not being legally liable by their installation and use. Proof does not seem to matter.

I had a Class IV hitch receiver installed on my Dodge at time of purchase by the dealer. Of the bolts, two are horizontal and a particular installation kit must be used. As one nut on one bolt has since disappeared the hitch receiver is near useless. I went to the local Dodge dealer and was given sharp talking run around. Probability versus liability being posed: The "warranty" on this "accessory" having expired (as if it were a chrome door handle cover) I'd no choice but to purchase and have installed another receiver and then try to collect money from the original installing dealer. Well, that won't happen. A Class V is on it's way. The liability by the corporation is moot when the expense of justice makes it a laughable "option."

Americans may the right of free speech, etc, but they've no right to court access. Which is where what matters is ostensibly decided outside of the legislature.

But of course I thought of the runaround of a $20k engine bill on much the same grounds . . stonewall the customer even though it likely wouldn't stand up in court (Ford will just drag it out and they know how. Not that the other companies are any better in general).

36,000 miles here and a lot of traveling and towing from the Florida Keys to Colorado.....No worries here.

I'm glad your worrying for me.

Some of these guys in the ford forums are having their ford dealer install the titan tanks. I guess the IDS software actually supports all the titan and transfer flow tank sizes. I would imagine a lot of it is with the dealer themselves. Good dealers are going to work with you and bad dealers are going to make your life miserable over small issues... That goes for F, G, D, or T.

Shane, so you didn't install the high idle switch after all?

Yes I did have a Ford diesel tech install the high idle mod. I need that,...no question. I do extended idling for my business. Guess everything has risks,..but never got any literature from Ford specifically saying it would void the warranty as does the aux tank. Plus, like you said I have a great dealership....let's just say..." I know people".....

Where specifically did you read the tank voids the warranty? Is this something your dealer is pushing? It's common for the CA dealers to ask you to sign a disclaimer that lifting your truck voids drive train and suspension related warranty coverage. But I've never read anything in the truck forums regarding a tank replacement voiding anything.
