    This morning I called my Ford dealer to ask about the recall (I hadn't read this thread yet) and they said "sure, no problem it only takes 20 minutes." But, since I have a 13 ST should I wait until the PCM update is available, or is that a separate issue? My car has definitely had the "running out of gas with fuel still in the tank" issue.

    My service guy told me 4-6 hours! 20 minutes I can wait. I assume I should flash my car back to the original tune first?

    Check for customer complaints regarding any of the following?
    a. inaccurate fuel gauge indication - Yeah this for sure.
    b. inaccurate DTE - What is DTE?
    c. drivability concerns such as hesitation, rough idle, or loss of power - Yes, rough idle every now and then... like it is about to stall. Not from the a/c running.

    d. I also hear an odd pop/clunk from the gas tank area from time to time, but only when I get in the car before I start it up. Not sure if related though.

    A) my fuel guage usually is not far off??

    B) Distance to empty...

    C) you should check your spark plugs.

    I got tired of waiting and called the local Ford dealer last week and finally got my '18 ST done today. They said they didn't have to replace anything and updated software/firmware (whatever). We'll see if that takes care of the wonky fuel readings.
