my 2016 F350 is a 26 gallon tank, which isn't much when towing a 18K fifth wheel toyhauler, the most I put in the tank is 23.5 gallons and the fuel gauge was reading empty, I would like to replace the factory tank with a large one, so I will be watching this thread. [emoticon]

This one works for me.


Problem is it says 60 gallons, however the most I have ever been able to put in it is 53.5 gallons. This with the stock tank gets me about 80 gallons.

I don't understand the different capacities. I have had 3 F-350 diesels and all of them held 40gal. Even a C class I had years ago had a 40gal tank. But I put an extra tank in the bed of all of them, not the C. Those real old ones did have 2 tanks but still around 40 gal.

Unsure what truck you have but take a look at Titan fuel tanks. They may offer a midship replacement tank. Based on some info in your post and some assumptions ford, 350, short bed, diesel 2017-2022 they offer a 55 gallon tank that takes the place of your existing fuel tank. No bed space lost or additional plumbing. I have had them in my last couple trucks and worth every penny as far as I am concerned. The new truck I have on order comes with a 50 gallon tank so wont put one it.

I have used Titan but transfer flow, S&B, or Aero tanks may make them as well

Jerry. Believe it or not it is 20 when empty. Makes no sense to me and I been a Ford guy since 1974!!!!


Just because the gauge says empty does NOT mean it's empty. What does your owners manual say?

Most of the Ford SB have 26 gallon.... IF you have a lot of extra capacity, invest in a Titan - Titan Fuel Tanks

They add 55 gallons and the tank fits where the OLD tank was under the truck.

I have 32 gallons and wish I had more. My last DRW had 35 and I liked that amount. I carry a 5 in my toolbox and have used it once in the last six years. But no way would I sacrifice my big bed height tool box with a transfer tank.

If I did anything different It would be adding the 55 gallon TITAN.

Valhalla. I think you are correct on your v10 with 26gal. Diesel has a Def tank that the v 10 does not

RDS makes a in bed auxiliary fuel tank. I got a 50 gallon one with my autoslider hitch about 800 miles on an average day pulling a fiver.
