Diesel in aux toy hauler fuel station?

Since I bought my toy hauler for the accessibility and entry way and not for bikes or 4xs, does anyone see any reason I can not use the fueling station as an extra fuel tank for the TV and just use the pump to fuel the truck when unhooked?

I am not sure if the storage tank or pump is rated for diesel but I could be wrong. I know on the toy hauler I had it said not for diesel use. After saying that I can not see why not.

I'll have to look to see if mine has the sticker about diesel. Thanks for the reply!

They use different tanks and pumping systems. They are usually available from the OEM - but are sold as either gasoline or diesel.

I don't see a problem with diesel unless you have an on-board gasoline generator.

I was hoping if this was the case he would have the second tank already.

A fuel tank is a fuel tank. Makes no difference.

It does.
Diesel fuel has a different viscosity, albeit not much, has different storage regulations due to volatility. Main thing is the seals. Diesel affects the orings and gaskets differently.

ECI Fuel Systems | Home is one of the OEMs for the fueling stations on toy haulers. They offer both diesel and gasoline systems.

For that matter you could fill the tank with Moonshine and become a SHINE HAULER!

One thought. The filler neck opening for gasoline probably has the restrictor in it like a car so you can only put unleaded gas it in it(dont think leaded gas is even produced...). some diesel pumps have the small nozzle but some are the larger high delivery nozzles. That may be an inconvenience at times.

I'll have to check that tomorrow. I am leaving Thurs. morning for 4+ years, so it would be nice to have the fuel station to use as an additional tank to carry diesel.
