Spare 10 Gallons

I carry 10 extra gallons. They are a good insurance policy for my forgetfulness nowadays . I have had to use them 3 different times. All three were for stranded motorists (2 rver's and 1 truck driver). I haven't needed them yet, but am always glad they are there.

Hi, nice set-up; I carry one red 5 gallon gas can in the same area on my trailer.

My thanks for all who replied. For now I think I will go with the extra five gallon fuel tank. I just don't think I can justify the expense for a replacement tank.

If you buy the extra tank through dealership they won't mind it.

When you get back from the trip, fill the truck with the fuel in the spare can first and then top off the tank. Then refill the spare can for the next trip just before you leave. Then the spare fuel is as fresh as the start of the trip you are currently driving.

We needed our 5 gal. emergency tank twice on the trip we just finished from Virginia to Utah and back. We you get "out West" there are long stretches with few diesel fueling options. Our tank gets us down the road so we can make a choice, and gives us a sense of security. I just emptied it into the tank this afternoon on our return to The Cabin. Won't travel in sparsely settled areas without it.
