^ much cheaper...
also by letting your fuel tank run almost dry you are shortening the lifespan of your electric fuel pump which is in the tank and cooled by the gasoline..

just fill up at 1/4 tank.

or mount in the bed an extra tank...

Hahaha True! But my guys mostly drive this truck i was just thinking there was a way to add some tank under the bed fills up the 2nd tank at the same time then they both empty together/ once the 1st tank runs out we have 5 gallons to get anywhere we need to be like a gas station!

make em walk to the gas station once carring a 5 gallon gas can full of gas in 90* heat...they'll learn real quick.

Is the truck gas or diesel? If it's diesel, there is a tank made by Titan tanks that increases the capacity to 52 gals. I have one under my truck. You can also use one of the equiment fueling tanks but they are only for diesels. If it's a gas truck, have some extra gas cans in the truck or one of those 15 gallon gravity fed tanks

The tanks Are not approved by dot for gas that's why.
