I put a Titan 50 gallon tank on my 2011 and now this S&B 60 gallon monster on my 2017 Ford F350. Install was quite enjoyable actually. I went almost 3 years with a factory tank in this 2017 and forgot how nice it is to go to the gas station half as often. My last towing trip from Utah to San Diego was the tipping point as I found out diesel is not as available in the California stations as it is in Utah.

Very nice. Your long bed is made for that. I just hate to give up any bed space with 6'8" bed.

80 gallon transfer tank & 40 gallon in the truck. I use gas buddy, check price along my route, and fill when I find a good price. $2.88 today and $3.10 most stations, but wait $2.69 in NM my next stop. I'll take on 100 gallons or so there or $41 at the higher price or $19 at the lower price. Nice to be able to top off anytime I stop. Trucks always filled from the tank so it always has the freshest fuel. 1000+ miles lets me decide when & where to refuel, choices, so many choices. Watch the clerk when you hand them $200 and say pump 3.

Amen to that. That is the main advantage of a large tank right. Buy it when you want rather than when you have to. With the OEM 34 gallon tank I just couldn't go very far when towing and there was more than one time I was sweating hoping a place with diesel was close. 425 HP and 925 lb/ft of torque with 18K trailer gets me 9 mpg. It is what it is.
