New TV for trailer

I recently upgraded to a new 2015 F350 Lariat, 6.7 to prepare for future longer trips. Had a chance to tow with it last weekend and wow, it was great. Small fuel tank is a little puzzling though.

The standard tank on the 450 is 130 litres but could be bigger. The aux tank they offered was ridiculously small and pricey to boot.

Ended up getting a tank built in Lake Havasu for less than the aux tank and was twice as big.

Short bed small fuel tank.

I always carried a 5 gallon can of extra when I pull. One never knows when you will need it.

Spare can

I did take a spare can of fuel with me. Good CYA measure. Will probably grab another one as well when we start towing longer distances. Planning 3 weeks in Utah next year.
Gordon, details about the tank you had built would be great.

Nice truck. I don't get why big trucks have small tanks. My Ram 2500 only has a 31gal tank. Many of the Ram 1500s come with a 32 gallon. Crazy.

My buddy has a 2500 Duramax and has the kit to connect his 50 gal aux tank in his truck bed to his factory tank. He can go well over 1200 miles without fuel. Pee and coffee breaks only.

aux tank addition

Well that is one positive about the range of the smaller tank. It does match the pitstops pretty good. I think my Ram 1500 had about a 35 gal tank in it. An issue I have with an aux tank is I will be putting a canopy on the truck so a tank at the front of the box would be tough to access.
I was thinking I could try to find a couple of smaller tanks that would fit between the wheelwell and the tailgate on either side of the box. You could access them without climbing into the box thenbut the limited capacity probably would not be worth it. Just carry jerry cans instead.
Just thinking on it still.
