would anyone want to replace the OEM fuel tank with a Titan
fuel tank? Well, most Titan tanks hold around double the fuel
of the OEM tank which provides security in time of crises
Tornadoes, Hurricanes and Threats of Flooding; extra fuel
can help get yourself and family to a place of safety. This
also gives you the ability to choose the gas station to fill
up at, thus saving a significant money on each fill up. More
fuel means fewer stops which saves time and money. (This is
really true if you have a service truck. Eliminating two to
three time wasting stops at store/gas station a month the
TITAN TANK will pay for itself in the first year. Titan
claims the tank will pay for itself within 1-3 years.
new polymer tank is virtually impervious to the corrosive effects
of diesel and bio-diesel fuels, as well as common fuel additives
that are blamed for degrading the protective linings of original
equipment steel tanks. Titan’s replacement tank is constructed
of military-grade cross-linked polyethylene (XLHDPE) and is
compatible with most bio-diesel fuel blends.
Tanks utilize common sense design features, which simplify installation.
They reuse most of the stock components, including the existing
sending unit. The tank itself is nearly indestructible, but
light enough to be hefted by one or two people. While a vehicle
hoist and transmission jack are ideal, hand tools will get the
of Titan Diesel Fuel Tanks
TITAN DIESEL FUEL TANKS are all made of, Cross-linked
Polyethylene, by the same folks that make the DIESEL FUEL TANK
for the Abram Battle Tank for the USA Department of Defense.
The TITAN TANKS are considered to be up to twenty (20) times
more durable than the original Factory Tanks.
The "TITAN PROTECTIVE SHIELD," is made of the same
cross-linked Polyethylene, or of XLHDPE material as the TITAN
TANKS. The "PROTECTIVE SHIELD," is really designed
for the serious off-road folks. Cross-linked Polyethylene is
very heat resistant - it is a space age material, so the cross-linked
Polyethylene TITAN DIESEL FUEL TANK is not a fire hazard nor
does the TITAN TANK react to heat from the tail pipes or other
hot equipment in the undercarriage.

TITAN DIESEL FUEL TANKS all come with the, "BEST WARANTY,"
in the REPLACEMENT TANK business -the TANKS, are replaceable
due to material and workmanship for up to Five (5) years/or
50,000 miles. TITAN replaces the TITAN TANK or any parts, but
the client is responsible for shipping and labor costs. TITAN

much more range will I get with a TITAN™ Fuel Tank? A: A
TITAN Fuel Tank will just about double the range of most popular
crew cab applications. For example, the stock tank on a GM Crew
Cab Short Bed truck is 26 gallons; the TITAN replacement tank
is 52 gallons. A Ford Crew Cab Long Bed comes with a 34 gallon
tank; the replacement TITAN Fuel Tank holds 67 gallons. For
extended cab and other applications, you can expect at least
a 65% to 90% increase in capacity and corresponding range.
Q:Will my fuel gauge be accurate? A: Yes.
Your analog fuel gauge will work the same with the TITAN Fuel
Tank as it did with your original stock equipment tank.
Q:Will my Driver Information Center (DIC) computer work
the same? A: No.
The DIC computer will not be accurate.
Q:Is there a way to fix the DIC computer? A: Some
independent companies are coming out with ways to reprogram
the computer and match it to the larger tank. EFI Live (www.efilive.com)
can reprogram most GM products.
Q:Can I install a TITAN Fuel Tank on my gasoline-powered
truck? A: No.
TITAN Fuel Tanks are only for diesel-fueled vehicles.
Q:How much does the tank weigh? A: The
short-bed tank models weigh an average of 45 pounds (without
the bracket hardware). This means more capacity with less
weight and easier installation.
How difficult is installation? A: We’ve
made every effort to make installation as simple as possible.
The TITAN Fuel Tank fits in place of your original tank. We
include all the necessary parts and detailed instructions.
Generally speaking, installation entails removing the stock
tank, moving the sending unit to the new TITAN Tank, reattaching
the fuel lines, and bolting in the new tank. Your TITAN dealer
can help you with installation.
How long does installation take? A: Between
2-4 hours depending on your expertise. We’ve seen TITAN
Fuel Tanks installed in 45 minutes.
the TITAN Fuel Tank as durable as the original stock equipment
tank? A: More
durable and better warrantied. Most stock (or original equipment)
tanks are relatively thin and made of materials like Linear
Polyethylene. TITAN Fuel Tanks are made of High-Density Cross-Linked
Polyethylene (XLHDPE), which is bonded molecularly. Also,
the nominal thickness of all TITAN Tanks is ¼ of an
inch. TITAN Fuel Tanks are so tough that they are backed by
a 5-year, or 50,000-miles, limited warranty.
the TITAN Fuel Tank hang down lower than the stock tank? A: For
most applications the TITAN hangs about 1 to 2½ inches
lower than the stock tank. Usually the difference is negligible.
Do I need the TITAN™ Shield? A: The
TITAN Shield, made of XLHDPE, is incredibly tough. It fits
over the bottom of the tank, providing the underside with
a rock shield. We recommend it for owners who go off-road.
Q:Will my Titan tank compromise my smog test? A: No,
Titan Fuel Tanks do not alter the stock fuel delivery system.
By not altering this system, Titan Fuel Tanks are approved
for use without exemption by the California Air Resources
Thoroughbred Diesel does not ship Titan Fuel Tanks to Canada.
