60 Gallon tank

Post by jrghac » Sun Jan 19, 2020 8:58 pm

I've been searching for a week. Even wrote Forscan. I'm installing a 60 Gallon tank on my 2012 f250. I have FORScan windows 10 with extended license. Many places on this forum says to change the Hexadecimal values in the IPC menu to get the 60 gallons. The problem is that on my (newest) version of Forscan it only gives me actual tank sizes and 60 is NOT an option, goes from 50 to 65. Does anyone know how to get to the configuration page with the actual Hexadecimal values. With a 60 or 50 my DTE would be totally inacurate. I'm totally stumped.

Are you using the basic plain language or the advanced direct hex to modules programing method?

That's the problem I'm having.. I can't figure out how to get to the advanced direct hex to modules to modules style of programing. The IPC module goes directly to the Plain English. If I could get to the advanced direct hex to modules, I'd be able to change it easily. Just can't find it.. Been trying for 3 days now.. Latest FORscan with the enhanced license.

Why would anyone want to carry 60 gallon of fuel around with them, think of what the weight does to your fuel consumption. Assuming a pick up truck has a 20 gallon tank then that is an extra 181 kg approximately your lugging about.
Why do you need a 6.7 litre diesel anyway, in Europe vans and trucks are no larger than 3 litre and still do the same job at better fuel consumption, lower emissions and a relative higher power / torque ratio than most US built trucks.
Rather a large truck to drive to the end of the road to buy a 3/4 pint of milk and a loaf.

Is there any wonder we have a global warming problem with that attitude, but then you only have to look at the President.

I actually haven't figured out how to get into Plain English mode yet. When I click the chip button, then select a module and click play the direct program values display.

Well if you lived here in the US, you'd realize that the reason for a larger tank, is so that we can go longer when pulling an RV, or purchase more fuel when it's cheap. And as far as the extra weight, it's really negligible with the big 6.7 F250. The extra weight is about the same as an extra adult. Won't affect the fuel mileage at all. Don't understand why you even commented on this tread, except to throw out an insult to Americans.. have a nice day.

Just wanted to comment about my original post. FORScan support has been awesome. They actually sent me a test built copy of the FORScan for windows program. Incredibly easy, all English, and you just type in the size of your tank, and voila, it's done. A big thank you to FORScan for the help.
