Good luck! Maybe you’ll get us a wink and a nod about using their existing diesel tank...

Sort of resurrecting this as camping season approaches. Does anyone have a pic of a 6.2L tank from a 2017-2019 CCSB? I've found some diagrams from online but not actual photos.

I'd like to compare side by side a new Titan tank replacement next to the 6.2L tank. If sending unit mounting locations are the same and straps can be fabbed up maybe it would work? I know they can't market it as a replacement tank for gasoline vehicles, but if sending unit mounting locations match and the 6.2 sending units mount into the Titan, why wouldn't it work?

...maybe I'm grasping at straws...but like my earlier post said, the most I can ever get in my tank is 26 gallons.

I certainly have been frustrated with the 36 gallon gasser tank, I am spoiled with my old 96 Dodge shortbed 4x4 that has a stock 26 gallon, and I added an aftermarket 40 gallon in the spare tire area complete with electric transfer pump and vents and overflow. 65 gallons, 900 mile range.

Getting my superduty 2019, i was shocked at the fact there are no longer gas aftermarket aux tanks. Long sigh...

Maybe someone with the helm manual could post gas vs diesel pictures? This would help assess potentially putting the diesel-use tank in the gasser

I’m fairly confident the fuel pump port would be the same. Seems like the thing we will have to worry the most about is the evap system and how finicky it will be...seems to me though the evap system with proper multipoint venting shouldn’t look at a 48 gallon tank with one gallon left any differently than a 56 gallon tank with 8 gallons left... so if the system accommodate the cclb tank without different parts it seems there shouldn’t be an issue with a bigger tank....

I was going to move my tank from stock position to where the chasis cab trucks have them which is spare tire location. When I checked into it, nothing from stock position tank was usable on chasis cab position ones so pricing it out would include everything.

Might be be an option.

Well.. the most you have ever added to your tank is 26 gallons.. It's a 34 gallon tank. It's not like Ford said.. "hey lets build this one truck with a 26 gallon tank".. and you bought it. I STRONGLY suspect you have more than 1 or 2 gallons left in the tank when you are filling up. Our truck has almost 15K miles on it, 90% of them towing our travel trailer, I added 10 gallons of storage/emergency fuel cans in the bed. So far, I have never needed them. My bladder (or the dogs) decides it's time to stop before my gas gauge does. I have in fact, added 31 gallons once.

​​​​​​I'll run the tank as dry as I can get and keep a spare 5 gallon in the back. Just kind of odd that every time I've had the tank as low as I dared to go, it came out to 26 gallons and some change. Probably done this 6 or 7 timest now. That's a lot of margin between what the tank holds and what my instruments tell me. Good to know while towing the TT this summer I guess and maybe that's what they intended.
