Hi all, I have a 1995 F-150 Short Bed 4X4 302.  I want to put either
a
bigger gas tank or a second gas tank in it.  I have a 3 inch body
lift so
there is a little room above the current tank so I might be able to
fit a
slightly deeper one.  Has anyone done this?  Anyone know what I can
fit in
there?  I don't really want to put one in the bed because I have a
truck box
in it and already have limited space in the bed.

Thanks,
Scott

Howdy Scott, it seems like you and I have the same truck, I too have the
'95 short bed, 4X4, 302, 5-speed with a puny little gasoline tank. I know
why I got such a good deal on the truck when we bought with 7000 miles on
it, because the previous owner got tired of filling it up every other day!!!


I solved my problem by using propane and have a manifold tank that is only
12" inches tall by 60" long with two cylinders manifolded together. This
tank is specifically designed for trucks with tool boxes in the bed because
it fits under the tool box and only requires a 1" or 2" spacer to lift the
box up a bit. New Mexico Highway Dept trucks have tons of these on the
highway.

My driving range is with a very full tank of propane and a full tank of
gasoline is from El Paso to Dallas (640 miles driveway to driveway) at
speeds mostly just above the posted speed limit.  Now our truck has 192K
miles with mostly on propane, fuel consumption is 12-13 on LPG and 15-17
gasoline. But compare the price of propane motorfuel of $1.05 versus $1.50
for gasoline, I'll take the propane anyday. Not to mention the internally
the engine stays much cleaner with the LPG than gasoline. That was my
biggest reason to switch over to "The Clean Alternative". I appreciate
changing my oil after 4000-5000 miles and it comes out brown instead of
black and stinky.

I realize this is probably not the choice you will make, but I felt it was
worth mentioning.

What part of the country are you located?

Hi Phred,
Thanks for the info, yes I am very tired of filling it up every other day
also.  I hadn't considered going with a propane system.  How much did it
cost you to get it done?  Any websites you got with more info on it?  Any
more info you got would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott

Subject: Looking for Bench seat lift kit option for 92 super cab
Date: Wed, 30 Aug 2000 22:27:46 -0700


I've been looking for and found a 4 1/2" rear seat lift kit JC Whitney's to lift the back seat in the super cab of my 92 F150. They wanted $114.00 for it.  Does anyone know if other outfits carry something like this? I'm also looking to replace the seatbelts.  The dealer wants $70.00 each.  Any better deals would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hector

Phred,
Is the price you are quoting a 'special deal' ? or has the differential
increased between Propane & Petrol prices ?
Down here the average Sydney price is $1.00 per litre for petrol and
50.0 cents per litre for Propane. Love it or hate it, that's reality.
Ford have just released a 100% propane fuelled only car, not a
conversion, but assembled on the production line.

BTW: Did you get the water injection to work?

Hector,
Thats a great price. I paid $130 for the seat lift that I have in my 1994.
As far as the seat belts go, there is a site online called CoPartsfinder.com. They can find any wrecked vehicle in their database, with pics, within 1000 miles of your location. Just a suggestion.
