How many miles can you usually go before you have to make a pit stop for fuel? For most of us sporting OEM fuel tanks on our trucks (and depending on a whole host of other factors that’ll determine our MPG), the answer is usually going to be anywhere from 250 to 400 miles. That is more than enough fuel capacity for what most people end up doing. But for anybody who does a lot of towing or has to do a lot of driving (I see you, North Dakota), a high-capacity aftermarket tank is all but essential.
Transfer Flow makes a huge variety of tanks for all makes and models of pickups, including their newly-released 60-gallon replacement tank for 2017 Ford F250, F350, and F450 Super Duty short bed crew cab pickups. We spoke with Warren Johnson, Transfer Flow’s vice president of marketing, to see what makes them tick. We also spent a little time chatting with Josh Gruis from Jag’s Pro Shop in Minnesota to get some firsthand impressions of the tanks.
