Has anyone had an auxilary fuel tank instaled in their truck. I have an 04 chevy duramax shortbed and would like to add a rectangular tank in the front portion of the bed, 8-10 inches wide and all the way across. Gravity fed with an electric shut off valve, and maybe some type of an extra filtration system. Any direction would be great.

Thanks
Matt

check out aero tanks in corona. also there are many bed tool boxes that are 30 gal on the bottom and storage on top like a regular bed box so you get the best of both worlds

Putting the bigger tank in the stock location is the way to go, especially on a shortbed where bed space is limited to begin with. ;)

Call up titan tanks. I got a call 2 weeks ago and they are offering good deals direct. I put a deposit on a 52 gallon tank for my crew cab short bed. Got it for 910 shipped to my house.

Which ever way you go make sure there are DOT approved for whatever type of fuel you'll be putting in it. Some are ok for diesel but not for gasoline or E85.

so then the dash read out works?

I think it does. It's weird. You ever fill up while the truck is running? I do when my little one is in there and it's 110 outside. She's happy watching Yo gabba gabba and I'm sweatin pumping dino oil. The range seems to follow the needle reading. Same thing with our escalade.
