Titan Presents Spare Tire Auxiliary Fuel System

10/25/2013 @ 4:21pm

Titan is introducing a 30-gallon polyethylene tank that fits into the existing spare tire cavity of American-made pickup trucks, doubling fuel capacity without encroaching on bed space. The tank 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 30-pound tank is easy for one person to install and includes mounting hardware, a filler kit, and an electronic fuel transfer control unit that can be operated from the cab. Titan has engineered the system for fast installation, and all components come in a standardized package. The tanks come in one size, but the mounting hardware is specific to the make and model of the vehicle to ensure it is securely attached. Mounting brackets attach easily and require no cutting, welding, or drilling. Like the spare tire it replaces, a mounting stud slides through the middle of the tank, which is then secured with a mounting plate.

“Diesel truck owners are always interested in extending their range and fuel capacity without compromising space in their truck's cargo bed and Titan’s new spare tire tank is an innovative solution to this challenge,” says Paul Nishanian, Xtreme Diesel Performance.

The electronic fuel transfer control unit allows you to hold the additional fuel in reserve or transfer it on the go as needed. The controller’s illuminated interface indicates the tank’s fuel level and features a single-touch button that starts the fuel transfer.

Titan’s distributors are expected to have the new polymer Spare Tire Auxiliary Fuel System in stock on December 1, 2013. For those who consider spare tires critical, dealers will also offer a Titan kit that allows the displaced spare tire to be vertically mounted in the truck bed.
