I plan to pull the straw and replace it with a longer one- maybe just stay 1/4" or so off tank bottom- I'll determine myself if I'll run out of fuel from heater operation- I don't really need Ford playing nanny placing the pickup so high in the tank.

I wonder why someone hasn't come up with a check valve in the pickup line end so a low fuel tank doesn't let the fuel drop back out of the line when one isn't using the heater..hmmmm.
