ok guys i've been brain storming and i think this is what im going to do
I do a lot of long road trips and i hate having to stop all the time and fuel up.I was thinking of putting a tank in the bed but its only 6 ft and it is already packed full of chit when i travel so i was maybe going to get a topper and get a 100 gal tank and put it in the bed and just stack up my gear.Well toppers are expensive and they dont really look all that great so.... Now my latest and greatest brain fart is to put another 29 gal tank on the passenger side and put a 44 gal excursion tank in place of the spare tire. In order to put a tank on the other side i think ill just have to shorten my exhaust and come out under the cab or maybe reroute it towards the center and come out in the rear somewhere. The downside of coming out under the cab ill have to invest in a better sound system because it'll be loud.
Now this is where it gets complicated i want to be able to run bio in one tank or diesel in the others.So i need a solinoid that will return back to the tank it is taking fuel from so i dont contaminate my other tanks.Where can i get one it will have to have 6 ports right and will i be able to read how full the tank that i have selected is.Also will the stock fuel pump pull bio or do i have to get another pump set up to run all of this.
Ok now for the filling up part of this i would like to come out of the side just like the stock filler neck that way when i have to fill up i wont have to unload my truck and maybe if i dont have access to bio and i just want to run clear in all of the tanks i would like to link all of the tanks together so i would just have to flip a switch and fill all 3 tanks off of one neck instead of having to run around to 3 different filler necks like a pit crew just to fill up!
Has anybody hooked up a aux tank off of the stock pump and returned back to the aux tank and what all did you have to do im trying to fiqure out how hard it will be to get all of this rigged up and if you guys think it is at all possible?
Just use the standard switching valve for the saddle tanks so you have the feed,return and guage like the OBS trucks .For the third tank just use a seperate electric fuel pump to transfer the fuel to the stock tank.when it goes empty and you switch to the other side .Done this on a older truck i had and worked great with the thirsty 454 it had .
I need the room in my bed so a inbed tank will not work very well for me.
i will try and find a obs truck with the switching valves here in town i bet i could find one for a gasser pretty easily but will the gas setup work in a diesel.Also i believe all of those older trucks have intank fuel pumps so im not sure how well that would work. Those titan tanks would be nice but i really dont feel like paying over a grand for a 51 gal tank.Anybody have any other ideas on how i can do this thanks kyler
