Auxillary Fuel Tanks

Have '09 F450 and need to add some more fuel capacity. Thought I'd replace the stock tank with Aero 62 gal then put in bed tank between 75-100gals, either pump fill or gravity fill. suggestions/information greatly appreciated.

Yep, but we have a 39' toyhauler to tote as well as a gooseneck. With fuel prices jumping around like it does-you find a good price you want to get as much as you can!! Besides-fueling up once a month or so would be great !!

use quick connect fittings if you ever have to remove the tank for anything. gravid works fine. im still in the thought process of what i want to do with mine.

if i go with a bed mounted tank i will it plumb it into the main tank. and ill have an in-line pump with a fuel water separator between the main tank and the bed tank. i need to think up some way to wire in a safety so the main tank doesnt over flow.

thanks what i got..take it how you will...keep up posted on what you end up doing

Have you looked at ATTA.com with thier two styles of feeding fuel? They have an "automatic"system and one that works on a mometary switch.

Have you looked here?

Ford Large Capacity Diesel Fuel Tanks for Pickup Trucks ~ TITAN Diesel Fuel Tanks: The Leader in Aftermarket Fuel Tanks
Many of them fit in place of the stock tank, keeping your bed free. Haven't used them, but have been researching because I pull a 5er and wouldn't mind the extra capacity.

No, I hadn't until now, thanks. I'll contact them to see if they fit the F450. I've been looking at these: AeroTanks-we specialize in auxiliary fuel tanks.
The FSD62L is the one I'm most interested, then I'm going into an in-bed model, still doing more research on those.

i assume you have a pick up 450 and not a C&C..you could probably mount a 2nd tank where you spare tire would be..it would be a little bit of work to set it up though

I've looked at those also-about a 40 gal is what I've been able to find. Not too keen on having that weight behind the axle and tow a load-sure it could handle it not sre what that would do to the ride.
