    Auxiliary Fuel Tank

    Who has an auxiliary fuel tank, preferably diesel but the gas guys might want to know too. Please specify type and a link if possible and what do or don't like about it. I am looking at one with a tool box, http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...FQQLaQod6BUAZQ.

    I have the Northern Tool 45 gal. vertical tank. The tool box would be nice but with my short bed truck I wanted the extra bed space.

    Mine was shipped from the Florida factory to a freight warehouse in town. They would have dropped it at my home but I was not home so I picked it up at the warehouse. I also bought their gravity fill option. It all works great.

    I would never tow a trailer without an aux. tank.

    I have a Transfer Flow combination fuel and tool box. 40 gallons of diesel and a good sized tool box. Works seamlessly with the OEM system and the monitor, which mounts on the dash, shows how many gallons are in both the OEM tank and the auxiliary tank and the combined amount. Even the stock fuel economy reading on the DIC still works. Very happy with it. Between the 2 I carry about 65 gallons.

    I'll be installing a Transfer Flow replacement tank next month. The original tank in my F350 is 26 gallons. At around 11 mpg while towing, this limits me to about 250 miles before I'm running on fumes. We usually like to travel 200 to 300 miles a day. So this means that we always have to stop and fill up along the way. I'd much rather be able to make it to camp, unhook, then fill up. It's such a pain to find a place to fill up when you are towing.

    With the 50 gallon Transfer Flow tank, I'll be able to get more than 500 miles on a tank while towing. Here's a link to the tank I'm buying.

    I know you said you looking at an auxiliary tank, but I too went with the mid-ship replacement. I can travel 750+ miles on one tank without my trailer. So I figure I could get about 350 ish miles with my 5er in tow. But becaus you have the long bed, you could get the 65 gallon mid-ship one.

    Here is what the 26 gallon and 50 gallon look like side by side

    I installed it in my garage in 3 hours (had to stop a few times because of distractions). Just something else to consider.

    I have this same tank (45 gallon with their freedom fill system) and am very pleased. Their facility is in north Fort Worth (near the Stockyards). Note that there is a lot of added weight with a full load of fuel (71 gallons).

    Just Finished Installing RDS 60 gal. fuel/tool box combo

    We play the Gas Buddy game as we travel and since each of us are already towing the cleanest restroom, favorite kitchen and most comfortable bed to be found in any part of the country that we happen to be in, why would we want to stop in some dirty truck stop or other station when we don't have too!
