Auxiliary Fuel Tank

I have an RDS 45 gallon tank. Bought from northern tool. Got a solenoid that I wired to one of the upfitter switches to open the valve while in transit. Works good for me.

Note: the RDS 45 is a narrow, tall(ish) tank. You cannot use a bed cover with it but it does maximize the useable floor space in the bed since is only 8 or 9 inches deepClick image for larger version

Only because I like you Jack, I went out and took some pics! My mother bought me a DeeZee 40 gallon gravity fed aux tank for my birthday from Amazon. I did the install myself. I don't think I'd want any bigger of a tank. It's about my limit for when I want to stop. I've been very happy with it and frankly should have done it sooner. I also purchased (at Tom's direction...at least that's what I told my wife) an electric solenoid that I wired to one of my up fitter switches. When I get to about half tank on my fuel gauge, I push my up fitter switch and watch my gauge slowly go back to full...It's awesome!! Here are some pics, so you can see some of the space that I have left between the tank & hitch. You can also see where the fuel cap sticks up a tad into the tonneau cover.
EDIT: I see Tom beat me to it. Also, there's a ton of install video's on Youtube for this sort of thing.

Thanks Tom and Dan......

Trying to figure out what to get......LOL

Thinking about DeeZee 106 gallon.

Itís higher than I really want. Was hoping for one under bed rails, just in case I get a tonneau cover sometime.

I did the combo box and tank, and welded a stand so I didnít lose the whole length of bed.

I went with an ATC gravity feed aux tank. Its a 32 gal tank. Works awesome, love having the extra range and the ability to fill when I want, not when I have to!

I’m running a Titan 40 gallon trekker tank and the whole thing fits unfer my tonneau cover and in the 6.5 foot bed with 5th wheel hitch.

This has a fuel pump and I’m running power through a up fitter switch. Hit the button and it adds 5 gallons, works great. Also has a fuel gauge that actually works.

Install took about 5 hours and I took my time putzing through it. If I had room for 50-60 I probably would have done bigger. I also looked at other brands and it really came down to availability, this is the one tank that had a pump that I could actually get on my timeline. It was also local so will call pick up was a way to save 160 on shipping.

No pics right now as I’m on the road but PM me and i can text them to you if you want to see my setup.
