I did the harpoon and get over 50 gallons now


(I harpooned my Titan tank ;-)

Yep, that’s what promoted the design criteria, videos of ambulances burning. Ford ended up buying a whole lot of vans back, too. Entire fleets in some cases.

It carried over to the diesels, possibly due to an over compensation, but you have to also put into context that the diesel tanks have a vent on the top of them, not sealed like the gas tanks. We haven’t seen a big issue of diesel spills, but there are a lot of things done under caution. There is a one way vent valve, a small plastic one.

I’ve Harpooned two of my trucks.

Harpooning is one of the best mods you can do IMO.

I actually use more than one vent valve on mine and i use a two way vent / intake fitting

psi releif if it hits a certain pressure but let's air in anytime mounted super high in the bed just Incas i over fill I want the filler to be the low point not the vent fitting

it was all in an attempt to get full flow fueling without auto shutting off the pump at the big rig station lol
