We know the new Super Duty is going to be the most powerful, most capable, and most badass Ford Super Duty that there ever has been, but it also stands to reason that it’ll have improvements in fuel economy. To help get more work done, and more range out of your truck, a 48 gallon diesel tank will be available.

One of those little placards talked about the fuel tank on the diesel. That placard touted the 48 gallon diesel fuel tank, plus an increased tank for DEF fluid.

I always appreciate a larger fuel tank. It means fewer stops at the gas station, even if you do put more fuel in. Also, with a truck like Super Duty it means that you can work harder between fill-ups.

It’s just one of the many little changes to Super Duty to make it the most capable Super Duty ever.
