second gas tank

anyone ever put in a second tank and where did you get it and where did you install it ( i know about petro works gas tank ) but concidering i can get a 5 gallon boat tank that may fit under the seat with some modifications for $60 i cant see spending the kind of money petroworks wants for their tank plus i want it to be a real reserve tank so you know when you are out in the main you have this much left

Re: second gas tank

It's called a jerry can! Why bother hooking up a reserve tank for 5 gallons? just get your butt out and poor in the gas your self [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: second gas tank

Yep, I did that, only mine is plumbed and will 1/2 fill the main tank on the fly using an E fuel pump.

Don't put a boat tank inside with you, very dangerous. Yes I know both ford and chevy have done it, but that doesn't make it safe, and both have been critisized for it.

Re: second gas tank

A locking strap across the cap solves the theft prob.

Re: second gas tank

the main problem i have found with the boat tanks is that they have been vented at the caps so it would vent in to the cab i do have some limited space underneath such as by the gas tank ( my exhaust currently exits in front of the back wheel) i am not looking for alot just enough to get me to the nearest station this isnt a daily driver and i allready have my rear cargo rack pretty full with the spare and tool box i curently only put the gas can on when i go on trips but would like to find a cheap alternitive and to get the weight forward more my rig is allready getting heavy on the rear (bumpers rack ect)obviously i am not the only one who wants more capasity other wise there wouldnt be 15 gallon tanks also been looking at air tanks they are strong and could be filled using a electric pump or maybe the return off the stock pump sort of like a inline colection point it would be allways full and fresh since the feul would be droped in to the top untill full then it would go back to the regular tank when needed just switch a valve to draw off the bottom of it so you would have a inlet and out let at the top and a draw off the bottom
