This Information Is For A 1997 ford F150 Xlt Truck. In Late April/may Last Year I Noticed One Of My fuel Tank Straps Had Rusted And The Tank Was Hanging Down. I Went To The Local ford Dealer And Purchased 2 Straps To Replace Both Of The Tank Straps Thinking If The One Rusted Out I Might As Well Change Both Straps. I Was Able To Change Both Straps Myself So I Thought I Was Good. I Did Not Over Tighten The Bolts Because The Bolt Meets The Frame Of The Truck Before You Can Over Tighten The Bolt. However, A Couple Of Hours Later I Noticed My Tank Was Leaking In The Area Where The Bottom Of The fuel Tank Is Shaped To Accept The Strap. I Removed The Strap It Appeared That The Rusting Process Had Weaken The Bottom Of The fuel Tank In The Area Of The Strap. I Had To Order A New fuel Tank From An Online Supplier To Save Money(parts Train) And Went Back To The ford Dealer And They Agreed For A Fee To Install The New Aftermarket fuel Tank. I Did Have Additional Costs To Replace A fuel Taken Sensor Assembly Because That Was Rusted And Would Not Be Reusable With The New fuel Tank. My Total Out Of Pocket Expenses Were Approximately $350.00. *tr
