Joe I believe to that you have a problem. I have no idea what it could be but it will likely be something you would never expect. I don't think its an ED specific problem. I've been involved with them from the beginning and am a Mod on the ED forum and have never heard of any such thing regarding them before.

Only odd thing I can think of would be if after the first time you got water or whatever in your fuel that they did not change to fuel filter and it later allowed more to pass to the fuel pump and such. Also are you the only one who fuels the truck?

Vern, I'm not only the one that fuels the truck, I'm the only one that drives it. Initially I felt sabotage but dismissed that after much thought as it would have to be a neighbor & I live in a retirement community with no kids or vandalism or crazy neighbors, at least I hope. Also, when the eco was fairly new I had a couple instances of power failure at low speeds but it lasted only for a mile or two & disappeared, I felt it strange but dismissed it. Before this happen last week I was seriously thinking of adding a Banks system for them extra horses & torque but no more, now I'm considering a Nissan Titan/Cummins.

Joe, how did they determine the fuel was tainted, and with what? Did they test it?

I believe these LED's are also the turn signal lights, but haven't actually looked. You cannot turn the daytime running lights off once they are enabled by the dealer. However they only come on with engine running, the transmission in drive, and parking brake off.

Both times an analysis by the dealer in conjunction with the Insurance company concluded it was tainted by an unknown substance. Both time the fuel tank was 100 % full, however this time it was topped off not filled from empty. I know, makes no sense!

First thing I would do again is change the fuel filter. And if you ever have it spit and sputter again stop and open the little valve on the bottom of the fuel filter and catch what comes out into a small clear container. It will only be an ounce or two but see what it looks like and maybe have it analysed yourself and take the dealer out of that loop.
