Transfer Flow vs Titan Replacement tank

Whats your guys opinion on the two?

Titan 51 gallons - Transferflow 47 gallons
$1,186 - $868
Plastic - Aluminized Steel


Will transferflow rust / corrode over time? Seems like it would fair a lot better off road but is it worth the extra weight etc.

Both are great and you can't go wrong with either I'm sure... I think I would go with the Titan though. The build is the same as stock and quite durable its self

I've had my Titan about nine months now and it's great, when gas is cheap fill up! Easy install, buy the skid plate( I didn't). The only problem and it's not even a real problem is your( miles to empty) will be wrong. I fill ip and it'll say 462 or something then I'll drive 198?! miles or what ever and it'll say 453 mile to empty. So your using all that gas and the float doesn't register it. Also when your 50 miles to E you have actually about 7 gals left. I've driven across country and back since owning and am very pleased.

I want a Titan Tank for my truck. Can only squeeze about 25 gallon in my stock tank. Being able to get 45 gallon in it would be amazing! Only fill up once a week!

Have 3 of the Titans and never had an issue with any of them,very durable.had 2 Transferflow in the past and they will rust.Another alternative to consider is the Dino Diesel Alternative fuel rear mount tank and set it up to fill your main tank.

I've been looking at the Transferflow and Titans as well. I recently became aware of the Aerotanks. The link shows tank 1019 will fit up to 2010 trucks, clicking the link shows a price of $680 for the tank alone.

Not sure how good they are, but it's another option at least.
