From my Ford site:
FULL TANK OF FUEL PROGRAM
The Full Tank of Fuel Program was implemented in the 1987 model year as a customer satisfaction initiative. Over the past 22 years, this program has been operated as a cooperative effort between Ford Motor Company and its Dealers.
The program consists of two steps to ensure that each retail customer received a full tank of fuel upon delivery of their new vehicle. These steps are:
1.Dealers are invoiced by vehicle for the quantity of fuel to fill the fuel tank, charged at the forecast fuel price for the quarter.
2.Ford Motor Company reimburses the Dealers for their fill by calculating the difference between the vehicle tank size and the number of gallons supplied by the plant. The Dealer fill amount is then credited to the Dealers at the forecast fuel price for the quarter and added to the Dealer Statement.
•Fleet orders will be automatically coded for Partial Gas Fill (option code 693). As such, the fuel charge reflected on the dealer invoice will be for actual plant fill levels and at the self-service price.
•Since Fleet orders will always be coded with Partial Gas Fill (option 693), the Full Tank of Fuel Program will not apply.
