Titan Tank Question

Hi all;

In the middle of installing a 50gal Titan Tank in my '15 6.7 CCSB, and had a question for anyone else that's done it. When the tank arrived, the box looked like it'd been air-dropped from a cargo plane directly onto the runway. When I opened everything up and inspected it, everything looked fine; However, I'm in the middle of installing it now, and as I was swapping the fuel pickup from the old tank to the new one, I noticed that it looks like the metal straps (which Titan ships IN the tank) chewed up the bottom of the new tank pretty cool (eg. if I run my hand along one of the edges of the new tank, it's.. chewed up plastic). I picked out all the small bits that I could find to clean it up.

Is this normal? Should I be worried about this? I mean, I guess it's plastic, so I'm not worried about the integrity of the tank, more wondering how concerned I should be any of this plastic gets sucked up in the future.

Thanks in advance!
Erik

erik512, it will be fine just get it wiped out and put it together.
I have installed two of them and both had some scuffing of the plastic.
I have since changed the fuel filters on both trucks, and found a couple small black specks that made it to the filter. I guess that's what the filter is for !!
You will love the Titan !

Thanks! I should have added that I just installed a Dieselsite filter this morning too, so I guess I can keep an eye on those filters as well just in case anything gets sucked up.

Thanks for the help, going to go finish assembling this thing!

Yea. clean the tank with a vac and you should be ok.

Make sure you tighten the nuts for the fuel sending/pump per the installation instructions. Let sit and tighten again. I pressure tested mine to make sure.

Just for future reference to those to have the Titan tank and want to add a Dieselsite filter. It is easier to install the Dieselsite filter prior to installing the tank, but it can be done without dropping the Titan tank. It is tight for big hands but can be done.
