pop can for a fuel tank

I just found out that my new F350 has a pop can for a fuel tank. Anyone know anything about the Titan aftermarket 50 gallon tank? Cost? Where to buy? Ground clearance?

1" lower than the original tank. $1100 plus shipping. Buy from the factory. I take it you have the short bed. Long bed tank holds 37 gallons, not huge but still a little bigger than a pop can.

I bought the short bed - 26 gallons. $1100 is a bit steep for an extra 24, I might consider other options before I jump at it. I wonder if I could mount a tank under my RV with a small hose and pump that could be flipped on while driving?

I like the idea of the large tank for day to day driving because it would switch my fill ups from weekly to bi monthly but lets face it, whos bladder will last longer than 27-33 gallons in a stock tank on a highway trip? not mine thats for sure.

You may have a point on the bladder distance. Mine might last but I have a wife and 6 daughters - three of which still travel with me. Still when pulling a 5th wheel and getting 10 miles per gallon that only gives you about 150 miles and you better start looking for fuel again. I've had where I didn't fill up in one town knowing that I could make it to the next - which I did but their diesel pump was out of order.

I am looking at the transfer flow in bed tank. It adds 50 gal. to my 37 gal tank. I have to drive to North Carolina from Anchorage AK in Aug. I have ran out of fuel on that trip before SUCKS! At least with the Transfer Flow I get a tool box with it.

I didn't know mine had a 37 gallon tank, That's amazing.
The most I've ever put in it was 29 gallons so I figured it must have had a 32 gallon tank.
Boy was I wrong, good to know thanks

Installed a titan tank before l left for florida, glad i did it. Pulling my toy hauler, i was getting around 9 mpg. With the extra gallons, now i could drive longer and look for fuel when i wanted to or when i needed a break. Should have put one in my 6.4 instead of trading it for 6.7. I didn't know they put a smaller pop can in the 2011 crew cabs.
