I don't understand this entire thread.

Now people are parnoid that they have a Ford where they need to drop the gas tank or do something else drastic to fix RFI problems.

Again, I've had eight or nine Fords, including some of the models mentioned in e-mails.? I've had other autos and trucks also.

If you ground properly and use a radio which isn't exceptionally prone to noise, you're fine.

Jeep, Chevy, Ford, etc.?I've used them.?

Refer to the appropriate ARRL materials about grounding and you'll be fine.? So, what is the deal here?

Of course, don't try this with a hybrid.

Stuart, do you have a list of those modern Fords? I have a 2002 Taurus that I'm 
planning to rig for HF mobile. I'm wondering if I'll have the noise problem you 
  Many thanks,
