I'm not sure how long it takes either. We have fuel in these tanks for three to five years between refills. Most vehicles don't have a ten thousand gallon fuel tank on them, so the turnover is much quicker... I don't think there'd be an issue with a tow vehicle unless you were planning on letting it sit for two or three years.

Back to the orig.: I put in this set up on my 2500 dodge diesel - 90 gal. tank. I leave it on all the time and just fill the aux. tank. Works great - refreshes gas. Got back from 3500 mile trip last month with AS - got 1,700 miles on flat roads from the two tanks - 1,400 miles in the mountains. It let me pick out where and when I got gas - let me not go into city gas stations with 31' trailer - and used web site 'gas prices' to find the cheapest fuel.
Best thing I ever did! - wouldn't leave home without it!

Anyone know of a Ford Dealer in Southeast that will install the Titan 50 gal fuel tank ? I have a 2015 F250 King Ranch 7.3 diesel with a 26 gal fuel tank, not good. I have called 3 or 4 Ford dealers and they won't do it. Also does anyone know if they are able to reprogram the computer to recognize the 50 gal tank? Need some advise if anyone has installed the Titan replacement fuel tank. I do not want to put a tank in the truck bed.

I had a guy north of Charlotte NC install mine last May. I ordered it through him and he got me the instructions to have Ford adjust the computer for MTE. All works great.

I installed a 37 gal RDS tank in the bed of my Ram 2500 w/Cummins last spring. I purchased a solenoid and ran the line that goes into the fill line through that valve. Wired this in with a switch on my console so I have driver seat control of when/if I want to use the aux. tank. Over an 8,200 mile trip this last summer I found the extra tank immensely valuable. Primarily, fewer stops for fuel and longer range. Also gave me more opportunities to hunt for best price. While I used a fair amount of bed space, I have Ram Boxes and there was still enough room for my Honda 3000i as well as grill and other junk. For the winter, I ran all the fuel out of the extra tank, put in some stabilizer and anti-bacteria mix. Next spring, I'll drain everything out to make sure I'm not cruising up the two fuel filters!

I installed the Titan 50 gallon diesel tank on my 2011 F-350. My local Ford dealer in Lakewood NJ installed it for me, but they couldn't or wouldn't reprogram the computer to work with the new tank. I set the trip meter whenever I fill up and keep an eye on gallons used, and this works well for me.

Regards,

Reganzo

UPDATE: Just wanted to give an update, I had the Titan 50 gallon fuel tank installed today by Auto Nation Ford in St Petersburg FL. They plan to go after this market and may even take a booth at the Tampa RV Super Show next year. They did an excellent job, reprogramed the Ford computer and we are good to go. Start to finish 3 hours, we waited while they did it.

getting my OEM 26g tank replaced tomorrow with a 50g transfer flow. with the 6.5' bed in the f350, i didn't want to reduce the already restricted space. i'll let you know how it goes. diesel fuel additives are common place in the boating world, add some to your fuel tank if you are concerned.

new Transfer Flow installed without a hitch, about 3.5 hrs. glad i had it drop shipped at the dealers at it weighed in at 300#s. aside from undoing the old tank and moving the fuel pickup and float, sounded pretty easy. they changed the truck computer so it now knows it has a 50g tank on board in order for the fuel gauge to read correctly. all in all, i am a happy camper

Hi, how are you going to tow without a hitch?

Nice one on the hitch Robert! I have in bed 37 gal and total of 38 ish in factory capacity. It's a 96 7.3 diesel 4x4 scab 250 with long bed. It's a daily driver And trip truck. I refuel 2 times a month and always use a treatment such as power service or Stanodyne for antigel, cetane and lubricity. Never a problem with fuel quality or overflow. It is tapped into my front tank fill tube. Thousands of miles. Also wouldn't want to travel without it. Only lose about 18" of bed space and has paid back in fuel savings . However it is configured, a wise investment for a diesel tow veh. My average mpg towing 31 classic is 13-14 . Bobtail 17-18 so I can always shop price. Just do it and GO!
