How much did the dealer charge for installation??
I need you guys to help me out, I went to the ford dealer about installing the 40 gal. tank, I received a install price of $450, and was told they may or may not be able to recalibrate it . I don't want to be putting out all these $ for a tank, to get 14 more gal. of fuel , and it not to work right. what is your view on this. is the dealer just covering his behind? the service manager told me they have put many of these tanks from titan on the F250 and 350 trucks
OK, back home and picked up my truck yesterday: $435 for the Titan XXL 40 gal tank install w/o FORScan programming
- My dealership's truck/diesel shop rate is $145/hour
- I'm not complaining about what I was charged because I got a bunch of other little things done that I wasn't officially charged for
- If members think this is too much, you certainly have the option to tackle the project on your own...
FORScan programming changes took about 15 minutes because I needed to update my FORScan software version and track down my Install Key for the Extended license.
The actual FORScan programming changes was literally less than 60 seconds once I had everything connected up...
- if you'll be anywhere in the Northeast after your tank install, I'd be happy to make the FORScan update free-of-charge -- just be aware that the fuel gauge is still accurate (independent of tank size) but the computer-calculated DTE (Distance-To-Empty) is what needs the change in FORSscan for the tank size.
My initial DTE popped up as 667 miles, which I know is not right, because even at 20 MPG, it should be over 800 miles on a full tank, so I am going to write this one off error due to making the FORScan change after
the tank install/fill = my bad as I didn't have the time to change it before leaving on vacation. I'm assuming that DTE will dial-in correctly on my next tank fill and I will report in on this thread...
If anyone is interested, I can try to snap some pics once things dry out up here.
If anyone has any additional questions, fire away on this thread...
