    Fellas-

    I have my truck scheduled for the fuel pump replacement on Thursday but am sitting on 3/4+ of gas. The service tech had told me no more than 1/4 tank but like a dummy I forgot and gassed up last week. I quickly considered a siphon job but that seems no bueno. Has anyone gone in with more than 1/4 tank? I'll probably need to reschedule.

    The dealer told me no more than a half tank and that’s what I sent it in with.

    I was asked to be under 3/4 tank this past weekend when I had it done. Maybe someone got it mixed up? I'd not worry about it and take it in under 3/4.

    As long as its less than 3/4's we have no issue. 1/2 would be more ideal.

    My notice says it doesn't matter but it takes less time if the tank isn't totally full

    Thanks all. Hopefully its just a matter of convenience for the dealership. I'll run the truck good tomorrow and take me chances with 1/2+ tank on Thursday. Also prodding them to to perform TSB-0092.

    Mine goes in at 0730 this AM when I get off from work. I put two gallons in last night to make it 40 miles to the dealership. Hoping it doesn't take all day, I need my beauty rest.

    I called in the morning to schedule an appointment for an AC warranty issue, there was an opening that afternoon and they said they could do the fuel pump recall at the same time. They requested less than 1/4 tank and I let them know I had a little over 3/4 and since I was working, I wouldn't be able to go drive around to burn gas. I told them I could bring it back at a later date for the recall, but the service rep checked with the tech and he said no problem they'd do both. I'm sure it's way more convenient to have less gas if it's possible though.

    I called this morning and they were adamant about the 1/4 tank maximum. They claim their insurance company will not allow them to store more than 1/4 tanks-worth of fuel. I am over 3/4 tank this morning so will probably reschedule.

    Great. So the techs are potentially stealing gas.

    My dealer said come in with half a tank. I came in with a little less than a quarter of a tank though. I had mine replaced last week
