seems like a lot of dicking around to me. is my primary tank full? Is my aux full? do I leave the aux draining to the primary while I'm driving? Will the gravity feed keep up? whoops did I leave the gravity feed open overnight and have a puddle of diesel? Can the short lady in my life reach the gravity feed, or even reach the Gas cap on the aux tank? I bet she cant.
Or if you have a pump, flipping a switch, getting out and flipping the switch, and in general worrying about it.

With the Titan tank - you fill up the tank when your on E, and you run until its on E again. No thought, no muss, no fuss. Its just easy.

And what I'm finding as I get older, the less I have to worry about, the better life is . If its automatic, you can't screw it up. If its manual process, at some point you will forget and screw it up.

52 gallons is plenty enough for me and my bed is not partially full all the time. YMMV

I agree completely and my bed is empty unless I need to put something in it.

Just keep in mind that Titan does NOT make a replacement tank for all pickups, such as my 2016 RAM Crew Cab, short bed with 4x4, no tank! In-bed for me will be the only solution.

Also when you trade your truck the new owner gets a sweet deal and you get to buy a new tank.

The atta tank has a freedom fill option that will pump fuel into your main tank when it reaches 1/2...and there is a gauge that tells ya how much is left in the auxiliary tank mounted in the cab.....the tank toolbox combo plus the freedom fill is the close to the same as the Titan tank ....

Just seems that if you have a long bed pulling a fifth wheel you get more fuel with an in bed tank since your bed is mostly taken up with your hitch....

But that's just my perspective
