I have a 25 gallon Enduraplas aux. tank and a 38 gallon OEM tank giving me
63 gallons total.
The Enduraplas tank is simply a portable tank that sits in the back of the truck. It has its own hose that I use to manually fill my tank.
THere is no installation required.
The additional tank does give some flexibility to stop when I want.
I can often go camping for the weekend without having to go into town for fuel. I often will go into town anyway but If the prices are more expensive than at home I can avoid getting fuel.
PA fuel prices are always more than MD it seems. While VA is generally cheaper.
I generally don't penny pinch on fuel prices. A few cents here and there are not a big deal to me.
The aux. tank gives me the option to save on occasion, it allows me to fuel at my leisure. It also allows me to return from southern destinations without having to fuel in the always congested DC metro area.

One ugly wrinkle is gas for generators, can't get that from the OEM tank very easy (yeah siphoning is one option, but burping gas fumes can ruin a good martini). Depending on the drive, I am guilty of packing 7 gallon gas tanks.

When we lived in the void south of Oregon and north of Mexico, driving 300+ miles to Eastern Sierras was the norm. Now that we live in Pacific Northwest, lol, if I drive 100 miles, I probably passed by a few hundred excellent camping spots.

What a difference a day makes.
