    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!

    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
