Titan or Transfer Flow?

The 26 gal. Tank on my '11 F250 CCSB is not cutting it. I'm in the farm and ranch real estate business and do a lot of driving on and off road. Should I get the poly Titan or the steel Transfer Flow replacement tank? Any opinions would be appreciated.

I am a fan of transfer tanks because they are removable and can still be plumbed in to your fuel system. I run one in my truck. On the down side they take up valuable bed space.

A little off subject, but are they putting 26 gal tanks in short beds now? My 08 had a 30 gal in the swb.

I wonder why they would change it to a smaller tank for 2011 from the 6.4's. My drw has a 38 I'm assuming like my 2010 long bed did because I put 35 gal in it last night.

You'll probably be happier with the 50 gallon Titan. With the shortbed you'd lose a lot of bed space with the Transfer Flow. Plus it'd be cheaper.

I've considered a larger tank - If I were able to travel more with my 5th wheel, I'd go with the Titan. It's a bigger tank, works with your current fuel plumbing and doesn't take up bed space. And FWIW, nobody would know your packing extra juice unless they saw ya draining the underground tank while filling up.

I'd have to say Titan tank.

tj548p has some interesting videos on youtube - this one is the Titan fuel tank install & first fillup - listen to the last minute of the vid

Titan. It's lighter and won't rust. The DEF tank is taking up room on the 2011 trucks so fuel tank size is impacted. Titan should have a large tank for the CC LB trucks in February. Let's see if they can make it 67 gallons like the 6.4 SD or if they have to back off a bit to accomodate the DEF tank.
