GAS GUAGE FAILURE.ON THE WAY HOME FROM BUYING THE SUV,THE GAS HAND WOULD NOT WORK.RETURNED CAR TO DEALER.THE DEALER FURNISHED ME A NEW CAR UNTIL THE CAR WAS FIXED. TWO WEEKS LATER THE SAME THING HAPPENED.WENT TO A DIFFERENT DEALER AND THE MECHANIC HAD A BULLETION THAT FORD HAD ISSUED SAYING THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE GAS GUAGE BECAUSE SULFUR IN THE GAS WAS CAUSING THE PROBLEM. FORD RECOMMENDS USING CHEVRON ADDITIVE IN THE GAS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM.THE MECHANIC SAID THE VEHICLE HAD 13000 MILES ON IT THE FRIST TIME THE GAS HAND QUIT WORKING. THE CAR HAD 17000 MILES WHEN THE HAND QUIT WORKING FOR THE SECOND TIME. THE MECHANIC INSTALLED A NEW GUAGE INSIDE THE FUEL TANK. THIS WILL ONLY HELP FOR A PERIOD OF TIME.IF THIS HAPPENED ON THE FREEWAY AND YOU WERE OUT OF GAS IT COULD BE SERIOUS.
