8,000 Miles Update

2010 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCab 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
Review
Beware if you park this truck on a sloped driveway. Or a side street for that matter if you're in the mountains. The location of the fuel sensor in the tank is a huge issue to me. This has happened since purchase, and local dealer refuses to address it other than "park it in the street". At just above the half-way mark on the fuel gauge, parking it nose down on a slight incline causes the gauge to read "E" and "0 Miles To Empty" the next startup. Gauge may creep up 1/4 tank or so, but not to the original level; that's after 25 miles or so. This is hugely inconvenient if my wife takes the truck and is unaware of how much fuel is in the tank. For $35,000 +, this seems ridiculous.

Hey, there! I have a 2010 f-150 scab with the 5.4 and auto 6-speed and i'm having the exact same issue. Did ford ever fix this? Seems to be right at half a tank (13 gallons to fill). It's done it on a mild grade, also. Let me know if you're still around. Thanks!

Looks like what goes around comes around. The 1994 Ranger we have has the same issue, of the fuel pump not being able to cope with inclines or declines (given that you're talking about the fuel tank relative to the engine) and it's done that ever since the first time we've parked it on an incline after it was new. Apparently Ford occasionally blows up the fuel tank/engine interplay and they can't fix it because of the "innovations" they've tried to make in a given model.
