Upgrade Your Rig with a TITAN Large Capacity Fuel Tank

Upgrade Your Rig with a TITAN Large Capacity Fuel Tank

We’ve been pulling together a list of tips for RV travelers who might want to go to Alaska. One of the best involves upgrading to a large capacity fuel tank (http://goo.gl/5hbDkV) by Titan. Install one of these bad boys in your truck and you are pretty much guaranteed to save money.

You can almost DOUBLE your fuel capacity with a Titan tank. (Click the pic for more info.)

Here’s the deal with a trip to Alaska, or any long trip: you gotta buy fuel. The Titan fuel tank gives you a much larger fuel capacity in your truck. So you can load up on fuel when you find it at cheaper prices.

This is crucial for any American who ventures into Canada, where fuel prices can be extremely high. In the Yukon Territory, we have paid $8 a gallon for diesel. Even in more urban areas of Canada, fuel costs are high.

You see, Canada offers “free” health care. The way “free” health care works? You pay for it every day, every time you buy any product or service, whether you use said health care or not.

“Free” health care is one key reason that Canadian fuel prices are so exorbitant. (To my Canadian friends: please don’t shoot the messenger.) So it makes sense to load up on fuel in the USA before venturing into the Great White North.

We met an American traveler in the Yukon territory once who combined a Titan tank with an additional fuel reservoir in the bed of his truck. “I never buy any fuel in Canada,” he told us. “I buy enough in the States to drive through Canada all the way to Alaska. Then when we return, I load up in Alaska with enough for the trip home.”

The increase in capacity with a Titan tank depends on whether you own a short bed or long bed pickup truck. You can expect to almost double your capacity.

In our truck, for example, we have a 29-gallon factory fuel tank. The Titan increases capacity up to 51 gallons. If we had a long bed truck, we could go all the way to 67 gallons!

We’ll talk about bed fuel storage options in a future post. Suffice to say that by equipping your rig with surplus fuel capacities, you enhance your ability to load up on cheap fuel.

You also obviously stretch out the ability to travel without stopping for fuel, which is both a safety benefit and a convenience benefit.

Of course you need to make certain the Titan tank fits your particular truck. Installation is best handled by a professional mechanic.

About smokeycamping

Well let's see have lived in NY for my whole life, have always loved the outdoors (as long as it is warm out) have always hated the cold, and like a dummy have stayed in NY. But now with my second try my wife, we have been camping now for well over 25 yrs. We currently own a 2010 Cedar creek silverback 35TS and can not wait to get out on the highways and see this great country we all call home. Hope to see every National park before my medical issue becomes too bad to travel. I love my African gray parrot (she is my baby) and have two dogs at the time brother and sister mutts, but love them all the same. Have always been a big Nascar fan, love computers (have a number of certificates to build and work on them) am trying to learn photography, enjoy light hiking, being with good friends and folks. country music, pop music and just being outdoors. So I hope someday to meet some of the great people who like what I like and post out there in some great campground somewhere in the country, till then I will keep posting and I hope you keep liking.
