I have the same Titan tank as Seann45 and love it. Will it pay off in savings from buying at cheaper stations, probably not, but I do have the option to buy at those stations and we all know diesel does vary station to station much more than gasoline.
My tank holds 52 gallons. Not long after I got it I put 5 gallons in a can in the back and ran the tank until almost empty. At the 50 gallons used on the DIC, I gave up and put the five in and then went and filled up. I wanted to make sure the bigger tank was in fact being sucked down and that I really did have 52 gallons.
Would I do it again? You bet!

I think the larger tank is money well spent on any truck. Granted, it does give you the option to shop for cheaper fuel, but a few cents isn't going to break the bank and that's not the main reason for having it. The real advantage is that it allows you to pass a station that looks like it may present a problem getting out of and keep looking. I still make a bladder stop about every 250 miles, but I'm not forced to start looking for a station every 150 miles like I did with the OEM fuel tank.

The Transfer Flow tank is $1300. They were the only ones that I could find that made tanks for gassers. I think there are some cheaper diesel tanks out there.

It will really depend on who you buy it from and what your local labor rates are. I think you can buy direct from Titan but they must charge full MRSP.. dealers may sell for less.

It's a specialty item and you aren't likely to find it discounted anywhere, but you never know. My local Transfer Flow dealer was higher than buying it from the factory, and even paying freight, I saved a few bucks by ordering direct and not paying sales tax. The installation charge was going to be the same either way.
