My '90 has a 19 gal front tank and a smaller rear tank.. maybe 13 gallons. I have replaced it once already and it was always that small, if it was larger I don't think there would be room for a spare tire under the bed.

The PO told me the rear tank was larger & knowing him for years & knowing he can look at almost any classic car & tell you if it is correct or about every option & cost. I knew he must be right, but it made no sense to me. I never had a dual tank truck Ford, Chevy or IHC with a smaller front tank. I never run on the bottom half of the tank so never had a chance to find out. INTERESTING & Thank You.

My truck originally came with a 15 gallon tank that was above the spare tire. That size tank wasn't going to work for me so I think the first upgrade I did was replace the tank.

This fill-up still took 2 more gallons (45 gal capacity). Each time I go in and give this much cash for the fill-up, they look at my truck and wonder where it goes.

Looking at the fuel lines in your picture, how do you disconnect them? I have a 92 F150 4x4 XL Supercab long box duel tanks, 19 front and maybe a 16 rear, never been able to put more than 15 gals. in it. When I fill the front tank it drips for several hours, I was going to drop it to figure out where the problem is, I have the straps unbolted, sending unit disconnected and filler hose loose, with my floor jack under it holding it up.
I had already changed a valve cover gasket, oil change, air filter, and the starter, and when I saw those connectors decided to call it a day. Ha! Any info would be a help. Thanks.

I think there is something wrong with the pump at that station.
37.644 x $3.119 = $117.411636 and not $140.00.

ok I messed up a little bit. I need both tanks on my truck because they are rusted out. Well I ordered the wrong front tank, I need the 19 gal and I ordered the 16 gal by accident and I have started painting them (to try and help them last longer) before I realized it was to small. Will it fit?

Hope this works!

This page shows the capacities for the year 1996 and is from the handout brochure

Data for '91 4x4 (LWB) F-150 Regular Cab tanks

My 1991 Owner Guide says my 4x4 (LWB) F-150 Regular Cab has a standard 18.2 gallon rear tank, and an optional 19.0 front tank. The 19.0 side tank figure shows a footnote (5). The F-250 4x4 has the same front tank, same footnote, and the F-250 4x2 has the same front tank with a (4) footnote.

After all the tank data, the footnote explanations stop at (3). I suspect the missing footnotes (4&5) address the transfer case part numbers; whatever mine is, the 19 gallon tank doesn't fit.

JCWhitney and other vendors say their replacement for the rear tank (OEM part number F3TZ-9002A) is a 19 gallon tank. They offer 17 gallon (OEM F6TZ-9002M) and 19 gallon (F6TZ-9002N) front (side) tanks.

I have a new Spectra F1G (19 Gallon) for the rear, and a Spectra F-14C (JCW: 17 gallon; Amazon & Advance: 16 gallon) for the side. They look like they'll fit; I'll let you know.
