I have a 2012 F-250 with a 26 gallon tank. I was thinking of getting one of these replacement fuel tanks that hold 50 gallons and wondered if anyone else has bought one yet and if they have had any problems? Here is the link for it: Ford pickup replacement tanks

I have a Transferflow - they're metal vs the poly for the Titan. Granted, it's TOUGH poly, tougher than the stock unit but it ain't metal. No problems with mine in eight years.

For the cost of one of those I'd just as soon run an in bed aux or transfer tank.

A buddy and I are gonna order the 50 gal titan tanks next week and install at same time. We are tired of the small 26gal tank and don't wanna lose bed room with a transfer flow tank. Which was my first idea. I'll post pics of install when we get them done.

i have the titan 50 gal in mine and it think its the best add on i have done to date. instead of having to get fuel every other day i get it once a week an i can plan to goto better fuel stations where before i had to settle sometime because i NEEDED fuel that bad. Install is cake with a buddy to help took me 2 hrs taking our time not to break anything. And a good ford dealer can reflash your MTE as i had mine done. Best price i found was xdp xmas sale witch was 15% off

Yeah they might rub but the super duty fenderwells are really large.
If you don't mind me asking how much did you buy your tank for? I can get them through transfer flow.com for $940 delivered. Everywhere else i looked was over $1200 delivered.

Don't bother with transfer flow. Go to northern tool and pickup an RDS aluminum tank for $450 and throw in an electric check valve to tie into your vent or just run an external pump on the tank. No idea why the tf tanks are so much money

How much bed space do you really need? An RDS 45 gallon tank for 71 gallons total takes up 9 inches of bed space.

I've been eye balling the titians for a while. My mechanic told me he heard a few storys of the tanks sagging over time. But, could be wise tails. I'd like to hear from more people that have been running these titians for a while.

I don't see how they would sag anymore or less than OEM since the titan is just a little longer and taller but straps into the same place?

mine has the optional skid plate that is actually just thick poly so that may help
prevent any issue if u go that route ?

great tanks great customer service

I use all the available bed space on my truck.
Anyone that hauls a slide in truck camper and is looking at the option of hauling more fuel, pretty much has to go with a larger capacity replacement tank.
I was talking with Titian a few months ago and they have plans to make a bigger front tank for the cab and chassis trucks, so I will be able to replace my 19 gal front tank with a 40-50 gal (not sure on the exact size yet).
They also make a replacement plastic rear tank (same 40 gal size as the steel tank) for the cab and chassis trucks, the oem steel tanks have a know problem with the inside coating breaking down and plugging up the fuel pumps and filters.

I was at a shop here in Queen Creek, AZ getting an oil change. In the bay next to my truck they where removing a Titan tank because it was sagging in the center. They where replacing it with a Transfer flow tank. The mechanic said they have replaced a few other Titans because they sag. He said the Titan tank is half as thick as the factory tank is.
Maybe its because we get over 115 here frequently in the summer, not sure.

I've had my 65 gal. TITAN Tank (LB) over two years and it has been fantastic, not a single issue...I check my fuel once a month and I have not seen any water in fuel...And there is absolutely NO SAGGING.

I should have been clearer in my comment. He said the stock tanks wall thickness is nearly 7/8" of an inch thick on the bottom, and the Titan is thinner. You can push on and make the Titan tank flex and the stock tank won't.


Just passing along what I was told.
