Auxillary Pickup Fuel Tanks
Equipping your pickup with a pair of Eaton's new auxiliary tanks will give you an extra 37 gals. of reserve fuel with just a twist of the wrist right from the driver's seat.
Tank capacities range from 18.5 gals. for a single tank, up to 37 gals. for a pair of tanks mounted one on each side. "We can fit all late model Dodge, Chevrolet, GMC, Ford and International 1/2 and 3l4 ton long wheel base pickups," Rick Steele, product manager, told FARM SHOW.
Models are available in side fill, utilizing an access door, tube fill (where only the gas cap shows) and rear fill (where the tank is completely hidden and fills from the wheel well). We also manufacture auxiliary tanks for import pickups, and a 31.7 gal. replacement tank for the IH Scout II, Terra, and the Traveller," Steele points out. Eaton's auxiliary fuel tanks are EPA and California certified. They're constructed of 14 ga. steel and plastic lined to prevent any rust and corrosion that may incur with condensation. They're also fully baffled to prevent sloshing and have fuel suction tubes that extend all the way to the bottom of the tank.
All necessary components and instructions are included with the tanks to install them yourself on your own pickup. Provisiops are also made for an optional fuel gauge that allows you to read tank capacity on the dash-mounted gauge.
Suggested retail cost, including the complete installation kit, is right at $160 for a pair of auxiliary Eaton tanks (37 gal. combined capacity) or approximately $90 for a single tank (18.5 gal.). Single 25 gal. tanks cost $136.57 with the installation kit. For more details, contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Eaton Metal Products Co., 4800 York Street, Denver, Colo. 80216 (ph. 303-825-7205).
