For those who don't know, last year I created a survey to show transfer flow that there is a market for a replacement extended fuel tank in the gas super duty lineup. Currently you can only get a transfer tank in the bed of the truck, not a tank that will replace the OEM gas tank. Transfer flow was impressed by the overwhelming positive response and started designing a tank. I just received an email from my contact at transfer flow this morning, and the tank is finished! They have a date with the CARB, which have to approve the tank for use in California, where Transfer Flow is headquartered, before production can begin.



The tank is 58 gallons and fits crew cab short bed trucks. They said a different tank would have to be designed for crew cab long beds and other configurations. They do plan a crew cab long bed tank, it is unclear if that would be larger than 58 gallons. The tank should be about $2,000, but the final price is not set yet.

Edit: forgot to put that they are hoping to release by April.



Thank you to everyone who responded to the initial survey, it worked!

I'm still in for this, sounds great.

BTW for those that feel this is too high a price, you may not realize that they also have to design new fuel lines, probably hangers and possibly a new filler neck. The point is that it's not just a bigger tank. I'm actually amazed that they took this project on and carried through. I'm excited! 🍻 🇺🇸
 
Nice work!

Not to mention having to go through all the red tape that exists for a product like this and California, which is where Transfer Flow is located. The California Air resource board is ridiculous. We have so many restrictions in California due to them. For example, all new gas small engines and generators are being banned in phases over the coming years.
 
Damn $200 fill-ups. My only complaint is the stations allowing you to pump that much before they shut you down. Only ran into it once and the limit was $75 and that was maybe 10-12 years ago.
 
Hopefully the model refresh doesn't screw things up where they have to re-design it :p

So Calif is banning RV camping and Food trucks by doing away with gas generators, not to mention lawn care equipment and all the home owners who have gas generators for backup power

That’s insane

Wicked cool, thanks for your hard work in haloing this happen

Now to start looking for a transfer flow dealer that is factory trained in tank installation so it will be done correct the first time without any problems
 
This is awesome. Impressed with the speed which this process has moved. And very impressed with the 58 gallons.

Kinda surprised estimated price is only 2k.
 
So $2k for the tank, what do you figure the cost of install?
 
I'd say it's gonna be about 250-500... That's my bet anyway.
That is consistent with install cost for diesel tanks - most quoting around $500. Also in Cali - note most places "give" you back your stock tank or "charge" you $125 to dispose of it - Calif. came down hard on guys cutting up old tanks and tossing - so no one is doing that anymore. Costs them about $100 to get rid of it.
