Titan Spare Tire Auxiliary Diesel Fuel Tank
30-gallon polyethylene tank fits into the existing spare tire cavity, doubling fuel capacity without encroaching on bed space
Idaho-based Titan Fuel Tanks will introduce its new cross-linked polyethylene, 30-gallon Spare Tire Auxiliary Fuel System at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, in November.
The tank and dash-mounted electronic fuel transfer control unit have a patent pending and will be shown to the industry for the first time in Titan’s booth 35111 in the Upper South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
It’s a first-of-its-kind fuel system is designed to repurpose the space commonly used to stow a vehicle’s spare tire and fits most American-made diesel pickup trucks made after 1999.
The tank essentially doubles the fuel capacity of most pickups and, unlike in-bed auxiliary fuel tank solutions, its underbody location means that it has no impact on the truck bed’s storage capacity.
The lightweight, one-size-fits-all 30-pound tank is easy for one person to install and includes mounting hardware.
