For some Ford vehicles.

Ford offers a remote starter system which is recommended. If the vehicle has an aftermarket remote starter system, it would need to be removed / disabled before diagnostics for P0460 can be started. Auxiliary fuel tanks that continuously replenish the vehicles main tank will cause a P0460.

For vehicles with an auxiliary fuel tank, it is recommended not to use the gravity / continuous fill style auxiliary fuel tanks. It is recommended to add fuel to the vehicles main tank with the key off.
