Just got my notice in the mail today. I haven't noticed any odors or leaks, so I'll keep driving mine.

I may call my dealer just to get some Intel. Side question - should this notice show up in the Ford pass app?

Did you get the letter and then took it in for the recall? I received the letter today and it states the vehicle is safe to drive as long as there is no smell or leaking of fuel. Otherwise wait to be contacted when parts are available.
same for me!

Been three months and counting for me. 93 days from today. Not cool Ford, really Not Cool.
I got a call from the dealership and they said the tank was in and would be ready Monday for a total of 34 for days. Something’s not right with you having to wait this long, it’s time to get in contact with someone at Ford to find out what is the problem.

My truck was supposed to be delivered during the first week of November. Tank arrived at dealership early this week and I took possession of the truck this am. Finally, after 3 months. And I did not learn the reason until after Christmas.

Inexcusable

I agree, I'd have thought this would be a push notification or something. It definitely seems like that would be an easy feature to integrate into the app if you have it, since your account is already linked to your VIN.

I'm going to call a dealer tomorrow and see what my options are. I was notified last week. Crazy to me that you guys found out a while ago? I've had mine since 11/19

Congrats L Martin - so glad to hear your vehicle is fixed and delivered. Both you and I have waited a long time for the same reason and glad to hear one of us can sleep better at night. I'm still in the waiting game, but hearing you are good, makes me have encouragement that my number will be called soon. Take care and drive safe my friend.

What was your gas mileage? I’m only getting 20mpg avg for 50/50 hwy/city driving and I’m wondering if maybe I do have a hole in my tank even though I don’t smell gas. I fall under the recall but have not yet scheduled inspection.
Fuel tank recall completed this week. My tank failed inspection and thankfully Ford was able to overnight deliver the replacement tank and I was only out of service a total of 2.5 days.
I just picked up today and wasn’t able to speak with my service manager and ask if there was actually a puncture hole in tank or if it was just a marring of plastic. I will be monitoring my fuel mileage to see if I notice any improvement. I have been getting about 25mpg average lately which has improved from my earlier post where I was only seeing around 20mpg avg, and so I don’t expect I will see much change.

If there was even the smallest mark on the tank, it gets replaced - it doesn't have to be any real damage, just a mark....

My tank recall completed 2 weeks ago. I failed inspection and new tank was overnight delivered the follow day. Hoping you have quick turnaround. Also note, my fuel tank gauge is now reading incorrect fuel amount in tank. I will be taking back to dealer to get resolved. Same issue also happened to another owner. Keep an eye on your gauge after replacement.

I’m going to need to have another conversation with my dealership. Mines been sitting for a week after failing and the new tank hasn’t even begun to ship my way.
