Only very short distances now. I got the transmission rebuilt to what they claim is better than new.

Several years ago I had a Titan Tank 52 gallon installed in place of my OEM 26 gallon tank. Works off tne same sending unit to the fuel gage in the dash and I really have enjoyed the extra capacity.

I installed the RDS 51 gallon with toolbox combo in my 2011 F350 just before my recent 2000 mile trip and LOVE IT! Installed myself. Also installed a pump since the Fords have the auxiliary switches. That way I can control when it fills up. When the main tank gets down to about 1/4 I turn it and set a timer on my phone. It takes about 40 minutes to fill up. That way I know about how much I have pulled out of the auxiliary tank. I saved serious money on diesel on this trip by filling up when I chose and using the Gas Buddy app on my phone!! It will pay for itself. I had first orderd it from Northern Tool but got tired of waiting. I lucked out and found the exact model I wanted on Craigslist. How good is that! It sits level with the bedsides by the way.
