Titan Fuel Tanks has released a new polyethylene in-bed diesel fuel tank to give pickup drivers extended range. The 60-gal. tank is available for most full-sized, American-made diesel pickups, the company said.
“We are excited to be stocking and distributing Titan’s new In-Bed Diesel Fuel Tank,” said Kyle Shiminski, category director, Keystone Automotive Operations. “The strength and durability of the cross-linked polyethylene material combined with the tank’s design and accompanying accessories are all factors for why we are offering this product to our global customer base.”
Keystone will be one of the distributors of the product, which features cross-linked polyethylene construction and weights 51 lbs. The complete list of distributors is available here.
The tank is virtually unaffected by the corrosive properties of diesel and biodiesel fuels, as well as fuel additives that have been known to attack the aluminum linings present in virtually all steel diesel fuel tanks, Titan said.
Titan’s tanks are formed from military-grade cross-linked polyethylene (XLHDPE). The durable tanks are fully baffled to prevent load shifting and have safe, smooth, contoured edges with no sharp weld points to rust, fail under stress or compromise structural integrity.
The tank is secured to the truck bed via forged eye-nuts and an optional utility riser bracket allows up to four inches of clearance for under-tank storage. Titan’s new tank is sold as a complete kit and with 15 separate options, it is extremely customizable.
