The fuel tanks on Ford trucks have an insulator on top which holds moisture. This causes the top part of the tank to rust thru. It is usually a small pin hole. If this is your problem it will leak more when the tank is full.<br>The front tank is an 18 gallon, rear about 20 or 24. Both are available from many aftermarket sources. I got mine from PEP boys, cost about $120 each. You might want to get new retaining straps too. They are usually rusted bad also. Make sure it is not just a fuel line before you spend the money on new tanks. <br>Don't bother trying to fix the old tanks, it will leak again at the worst possible time!!
