I recently retired after 31 years in law enforcement and now want to be on the road for fun. I have a 2019 F350 Super Duty with an 8 foot bed. I am looking for an aux fuel transfer tank/tool box combo where I can push fuel into my truck tank with the flick of a switch. Fuel is priced nicely in my area and I want to take advantage of this. Does anyone have any safe recommendations which will not break the bank?

I have This: Clicky. I really are very satisified with it. I also bought This installation kit.

I bought it in 2007 and installed it in my 2005 Chevy. I moved it to my 2015 Chevy when I traded trucks. I read before buying it that you will NEVER recover the cost of the tank in fuel savings and I definitely can verify that statement but the convenience of being able to travel 1000+ miles before even thinking about finding a fuel station Is why I bought it.

I'll assume you have a diesel. I ordered an RDS combo 91 gal/tool box from Northern Tool. Installed it myself. It is a gravity feed that I can manually turn on and off. Didn't see the need for a pump and all that. I flip the valve and let it run. Been using it for 5 years now, no issues. I don't have to drag the condo into gas stations any more. I'm retired LEO sgt and doing my best to put 30 years out of my memory.

Do you know the difference between brake and break? A lot of folks here do not.

RDS makes a great system. I have installed a few for long haulers.

Tractor Supply will likely have what you need. That 8 ft bed will work fine with the big tank

^ I've bought a few tanks and pumps from tractor supply. Never seen any hardware for the gravity setups or plumbed in pump setups there. Just basic transfer tanks and external pumps around here.

JME, RDS and Transferflow are the best quality IMO for tanks or tank/toolbox combos. Pick one or buy any tank and put together the pieces for how you want to transfer fuel. Not too bad of a jigsaw puzzle, biggest thing is sourcing an appropriate check valve for an automatic gravity system if you go that way.
