    I am kicking around the idea of adding a split fuel tank to my isuzu box truck? I need something that mounts to the underside of the truck. I want something to hold gas in one and mix in the other. Also I want a manualy pumped unit (no electric). What brands are out their and where do I find one? Cost? Problems? Likes? Dislikes? 2007 Isuzu NQR(5500) 176 WB

    I was wondering if anyone has had any problems with the blitz fuel station. I have herd that metal containers have a problem collecting water vapor inside the tank and getting water in the fuel? has anyone herd of this or have any problems?

    I got 2 of those gemplers couple of years ago after waiting 6 weeks on back order they came and leaked like a sieve. no one would answer my phone calls so I called credit card co and stopped payment. I still got 2 sitting in the rafters. pile of junk where the hose mounts to the tank leaks the design is a joke. anyone want them?

    You can check out www.northerntool.com www.transferflow.com for ideas, and I thought someone on this site builds an under-box/along-frame fuel station as you mentioned? I'm sure it's costly, but you generally get what you pay for.
