    Default Larger Fuel Tank?

    Has anyone put a larger fuel tank on your tundra? I was looking at this one: Toyota Tundra Replacement Fuel Tank

    When I pull my trailer I get 8 MPG or so. A larger tank would be nice.

    I don't have one, but that's the one I want. I could use one for towing as well.

    for that kind of money you could get a tank that goes in the back of the truck in the frame rails and have better weight transfer. how ever you would need to relocate the spare. but then again i dont have one now so........

    I don't tow, and I'd still like one of these. Not worth the money though unless you put a lot of towing miles on the truck. At 12 mpg (city) I go through a tank way too fast so I know if you're towing a long haul it must get really annoying stopping every few hours.

    They're great in theory but with gas prices where they are you have to take out a home equity loan just to fill it.

    I'm still thinking about it. I used to get 9.5 mpg pulling, but since I raised the front end 2.4" and 1" in the rear I only get 8 - 8.5 mpg. I pull a 8x20 cargo trailer at about 7500Lbs. I am in the Model Train business and I travel to train shows anywhere from 350 - 700 miles each way. I have to stop every 150 miles or so. I set the cruise on 70 and watch the gauge go down. If I had the larger tank I would probably not keep it full unless I was pulling. Ofcourse no trailer and I could 600 plus miles.

    It would be worth it for you. We used to tow our camper with my wife's 4-cyl Highlander. The mileage would drop from 25 to 19, I'd have to start looking for gas around 250mi. There were times when gas was few and far between, when you did find it it would be 50-75 cents more per gallon. With such a low range, you have to pay it.

    We use the Tundra now, mileage only drops 1mpg so it is worth it.
