Titan Fuel Tanks, a leading manufacturer of high-performance, engineered aftermarket fuel tanks, introduced its new cross-linked polyethylene, Spare Tire Auxiliary Fuel System at the 2013 SEMA Show in November. The innovative 30-gallon tank and fuel transfer control unit have a patent pending.
The first-of-its-kind fuel system is designed to repurpose the space commonly used to stow a vehicle’s spare tire and fits most American-made diesel pickup trucks made after 1999. The tank essentially doubles the fuel capacity of most pickups and, unlike in-bed auxiliary fuel tank solutions, its underbody location means that it has no impact on the truck bed’s storage capacity.
The lightweight, one-size-fits-all 30-pound tank is easy for one person to install and includes mounting hardware, a filler kit and an electronic fuel transfer control unit that can be operated from the comfort of the cab. Titan has engineered the system for fast installation, and all components come in a standardized package. (www.titanfueltanks.com)
