gas tank

Hello guys

I live in southern California where diesel is always over $4.10 a gallon.they have it for $3.89 now wish i had a bigger tank.my question is has anyone ever installed an extra tank,and how hard was the job?also it would be nice to get 900 to 1000 miles between fill ups.

tons of options from in bed to larger mid ship replacements

I have a Titan 50 where my old 28 used to be

search Titan/Transfer Flow ETC don't search "gas" Tanks like your title Gasoline tanks are not made by Titan and some others due to the DOT requirements

I just threw a 100 gal steel tank in my bed, chained it down. So heavy it couldn't move anyways. Get a pump with a filter and good to go. I just run the wires from the pump to pos/neg battery terminals then turn pump on. Could drive to Utah without stopping at a station. Great addition. My setup isn't 'clean' by any means but works for me.
