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?
