My '03 2500 HO does the same thing. It is pretty rythmic too. Everytime it goes ding it seems to cost me anywhere from $70-100, depending on the price of Diesel, but it does get me about 550 miles between dings.
On the other hand, if your dinger is dinging more rythmic than that, say many times when the tank is still full, I'd think it was the sending unit in the tank. Other folks with more experience will come on and direct you on that though.

good one!

or I'd be inclined to break the dinger and start counting between fillups! I hate dings! Put your seatbelt on! Turn your lights off even if you're trying to fumble for the padlock. Now, put that seatbelt on while you park the vehicle! Thank goodness none of my trucks have dingers!
