What do yall suggest for fillups?

I'm currently installing a flatty on my 97 obs. I'm gonna have to pull the filler necks to install a longer rubber hose, I figure 1 hr of downtime. I am mounting my bed pretty high, and then gonna pack a block too just in case. I've heard something about pulling the filler neck and filler hose (big rubber one) and then cutting a plastic line right off about 1 inch into the tank.

I can't/don't want/have no time to do the tricky fast fill mod so what are my other options?

Transferflow has fillneck kits. Kinda pricey, but good quality. Transfer Flow Fuel Tank Systems

Yeah saw those. Curious as to if I purchased two superduty necks if I could just plug and play?

Re: What do yall suggest for fillups?

When we got the kits for our work truck which is a 97 with a utility box it was the part where the cap screws into and the piece that bends into the tank and some rubber tubing. I think all of the tubing was cut a x amount of feet, probably to fit more than one application, just guessing, all of it had to be cut to fit. I don't know for sure if the pieces that are for the tank are specific to model, since they are are steel and welded together at certian angles. Hope this helps.

Well something is better than nothing right? They were a necessity. I don't really know what was wrong with the original fillnecks that wouldn't make them work, maybe the angle, but you couldn't even fill the back tank on the truck. The front one was possible, but still not the best. We drive around 100 miles a day everyday sometimes up to 200, so its really nice to have both tanks full if we are going somewhere where there is no diesel pump.

Re: What do yall suggest for fillups?

I called the flatbed dealer today and I got a secret. What I need to do (will save money this way. Run a couple on my tank of regular fuel neck hose then run that to a pipe something like 3 inches id or so, run that damn near up to the neck of my truck. On the neck piece there is a bend in it but it near this bend but leave enough for hose clamps. They said every single obs they have gotten they have done this. I am also going to do the super duty mod. If anyone wants to know why a flatbed rules. if I am careful I can reach in my goosneck door and reach inside the frame area. I also have 4 inches between truck and flatbed frame which means I can reach through there and then between tank and flatbed deck its a foot or and I can swap out senders if I need to :).

I'm gonna just do the vented neck mod and then a run a 38 gal in the rear and a transfer tank in addition to my side tank. I was gonna pull the side tank but its already hung and everything. If my fuel switch goes out then I will just plumb that tank into my 38 gal so that I can just feed one tank to the other without switcing tanks.

Re: What do yall suggest for fillups?

Instead of using fuel hose ($30 some a foot) I am going to run metal pipe and then use fuel hose for couplers.


I also found a 38 gal real bronco tank, plus I've got a 150 gal transfer tank, and then the side mount tank so I'd say I have plenty of fuel :)
