Hi guys. Well I've searched all morning and haven't completely answered my question so I figured I'd throw it out there.
I'm getting a 110 gallon aluminum fuel tank for in the bed of my '06 F350 short box. I have a canopy on at all times so I'm gonna need to plumb the tank in. It's either that or 30 feet of hose, a pump, wiring etc etc which I won't do.
I called a local fuel shop here and ran it by them, but the fella wanted to look into it on account of the trucks fuel stock fuel tank being in his words "a sealed fuel system".
He figured worst case scenario I'd have to remove the fuel cap on the truck while I filled it. Fair enough. Searching on the Org has told me that there are people with both gravity and pump fed auxiliary systems.
I'm looking for ideas on how to have this sucker plumbed in. I don't mind paying for an inline pump, but would rather go gravity if possible. If I go gravity fed though, I don't want to have to pull over and remove my fuel cap while it fills.
The tank I'm looking at already has a drain fitting on the bottom corner of it.
-Must be either steady filling on the go, or quick pump filling at a stop.
-Must be no chance of overflow or spillage. This is really important to me.
-Would like to be able to have it put together without ordering some specialty plumbing kit and computer. (Tranfer Flow or Northern Tool/RDs kits) Only because I want to get this done in the next day or two.
-Inline filter would be a big bonus, but not critical.
-Fuel gauge for the aux tank would also be a big plus, but not a deal breaker.
Thanks in advance for the advice!
