More than likely you have a fuel tank selector on the dash. In the Fords this is what happens when they start to malfunction. A fuel switch is a proprietary part you will need to get from Ford. It should be around 40-45 dollars. A simple quick change out on the fuel tank selector switch. They get hot and actually melt internally over time.
