Auxiliary Fuel Tank
 
Any recommendations for an F-250 bed mounted auxiliary diesel fuel tank

I have a 2003 Dodge 3500 and put a 45 gal. transfer tank in the bed. I put a valve at the base of the tank and gravity feed the main tank as needed. This give's me 80 gallons of fuel and a 1000 mile range when towing.
I can top the tanks off in Cheyenne WY and make it home to TX and still have right under a half tank of fuel left.
If I did it again I would go with the 60 gal. tank.

Try Transfer Flow out of Chico CA. They make quality products.

I put a 100-gallon fuel oil tank with a transfer pump and filter in the bed of my GMC 2500. This and the 36-gallon fuel oil tank originally installed allows me to avoid the high fuel tax areas like PA and CA.

I saw a fuel tank in the classified section.

I installed the Titian 55 gallon, replacement for the stock tank. 2017 F250 6.5 bed, small tank for a diesel truck.
Installation was easy in my garage, without a lift, just run the tank almost empty, used a motorcycle lift to drop out and install the new tank.

I did the same thing. Easy. The dealer got me for $150 to recalibrate the gauge. I had a Transfer flow 50 gallon in the bed before I installed the Titan tank. So, now have 100 gallon capacity. The bed tank may go away, to increase capacity.

I installed a 91-gallon RDS rectangular aluminum tank in the bed of my F250 and love it.

I put a water-and-sediment fuel filter to assure clean fuel coming out of the tank, and a 13GPM fuel pump with a nozzle so I can refuel other diesel equipment with it, along with the F250 tow vehicle.

It's great to have a fuel range of 1500 miles and to be able to pick the best prices and locations for filling the tank. I often refill while going out for dinner after parking for the night, thus allowing my mid-day stops to relaxing and resting for a while.
