Fuel Tank Size

I have been looking at some new trucks and was wondering what size fuel tanks they come with, such as extended cab, crewcab, long bed and short bed models.
I have not seen anything on it was wondering if anyone knows or has this info.

Depending where you read, , , the Crew Cab/short beds have a 25 or 26 gallon tank. Just figure it for 25 and be safe.

As far as l know, all other wheel bases and cab/bed configurations have a 37 gallon tank.

Yes, we all wonder why the most popular configuration (CC/SB) has the small tank.

The ECSB has the small tank too. It's because of the DEF tank taking up space.

rumor is that the small tank is there because a bigger tank would have made the truck overweight

The aftermarket has 50 gal tanks, but it's over a grand and it makes me wonder...

Last year I worked in Chicago and had a company Escalade. It would easily hold more than $100 of fuel, but the pumps cut off there, sorry, $100 is all you get.

How are you guys with 50 gal tanks getting them filled?

Yep, as the fuel prices have increased to line the pockets of greedy bastads, the stations have limited max purchase at the pump with a CC. I remember when the limit was $75 and then $100 as you remember.

Around here now the limit is $125 but you can go inside and leave your card and fill up. They will check the card just like a large purchase at any other business. My max fuel buy to date was $308 at a truck stop. They acted like this happens many times per hour but I felt it for quite a while after!!!!

Here, the pay at the pump gas/diesel pumps are the ones that limit fuel purchases to $100. If I go inside the station and don't use pay at the pump, I'm able to pump as much fuel as I want. When I use pay at the pump, I'm cutoff at $100 regardless of gas or diesel. Believe it has something to do with the credit card limits set at gas stations and the pre-authorization. I know Visa in Canada is set to $100 and so was Mastercard, but recently, Mastercard got bumped up to $150 and I was told Visa was going to follow in the not so distant future.
