more fuel capacity for my TV

Need to carry more than the 37g Dodge provides. Am considering an aftermarket replacement tank (55g) by Transferflow. Anyone have any experience w/these and any opinions to share on the subject? Want to keep the truckbed for storage so not too keen about a transfer tank. Many thanks in advance.
Brian

With all due respect, do you REALLY want to haul all that gasoline?
Gas stops are a good way to break the monotony and take a stretch.
Also, think of the sun beating down on the tank, or the fumes if you mount it inside.
Strongly suggest you review the risk/reward scenario.

Extra Fuel

Brian;
Having done the extra tanks (2) on a Suburban I can attest to the fact that you can drive forever. There are problems to consider. If not kept full moisture forms in the tank. If not mounted between the frame rails, an accident can turn your rig into an inferno. (If the fuel is diesel it is much safer since its flash point is 180 degrees)

We have a tendency to treat gasoline like water. It is very dangerous. I have poured a half gallon on the ground in a ground bee hole and thrown a match at it. It about knock me down.

All in all my extra gasoline tank(s) were not worth replacing on any two vehicle since then.

Brian,
While this is an old thread, I have been contemplating the Transferflow large replacement tank for my '01 2500hd. What did you ever do on your Dodge?
