Titan Fuel Tank

Just saw Titan Fuel Tanks released a 48 gallon replacement tank for the F-150 Diesel. I think its time to extend the range of my 2019 platinum even further...

Wow, this would be killer awesome!!! Definitely interested! I wonder if the weight of the extra 22 gallons of fuel when full will impact mpg fuel economy. 6.943 pounds/gallon = 152.75 pounds of extra weight with a full 48 gallons over our 26 gallon tank. Also, the bigger 48 gallon tank probably adds weight over the 26 gallon tank as well.

That is one of the things I thought I would miss from my 2010 is the 36 gallon tank. Now going to a 48 gallon tank with better fuel economy than the 2010 would be splendid! It would be insane as you would be getting 960-1200 miles on a single tank.

There is even a FORScan mod for the Super Duty's with the Titan fuel tanks, and there is a code for the 48 gallon tank! Tweak this code with FORScan after the new tank is installed and DTE and everything else will calibrate correctly.

Change Fuel Tank Size
IPC 720-03-01 ... xxx* **xx xxxx ... xxx* **xx xxxx
Change asterisks to one of the following: 4 4A=30 Gal, 5 07=34 Gal, 5 EA=40 Gal, 7 19=48 Gal, 7 65=50 Gal, 8 22=55 Gal (This parameter is programmed to accept 4 digit Liters in this format XXX.x 55gal converts to liters of 208.198L so 208.2L rounded then drop the decimal 2082 decimal to HEX equal 822.)

More research would be needed to know exactly how to make this change properly, but it looks to be doable!

Does anyone who has an FX4 Off Road Package know if we have a skid plate protecting the fuel tank? I am wondering how this 48 gal Titan tank fits within the skid plate area (if exists) and whether a larger skid plate would be needed or not? Looking for others to chime in on this--thanks.

I just did an online chat with Titan, and the 48 gallon tank can only be put on the F150 Long Bed (6.5') Power Stroke. Lucky for me that is what mine is, so this is an option for me to consider now.

Titan online support agent said that the OEM tank is linear polymer and Titan is a cross linked military grade polymer and comes with a lifetime warranty. I asked him how resistant is the tank to impact damage from rocks if off-roading--his response: Very resistant. They really are incredibly strong. All of our products are strong enough to survive our brutal drop test. Here is a awesome video to watch:

I asked him if skid plate protection is required--his response: It's not necessary. We offer them on some tanks, but its more for peace of mind. I have personally seen the full weight of trucks on them against rocks in Moab, and they come away with no damage. The durability of the material is why we are the only ones in the entire industry with a lifetime warranty.

I mentioned the FORScan mod--his response: As far as the readouts go, your fuel gauge will read correct. The readout of range/distance to empty (DTE) will read incorrect and is the only thing that will read incorrect. Forscan is definitely a great option and we also just released an app & OBD connector that will display the range/distance to empty on your smartphone in real time. It is found here:

Looks like I am out with the 5.5' bed in my Platinum FX4...

I factory-ordered my 2018 F150 Diesel Platinum FX4 with the same exact options as my factory-ordered 2015 F150 Platinum FX4 with the exception of only one option: The 36-gallon extended fuel tank. As we all know now, this option is not available on the F150 Diesels because the 5.5 gallon DEF tank takes up the spot where the 36-gallon extended fuel tank would go.

To be honest I am filling up my 26-gallon diesel tank in my 2018 at a much lower frequency (14+ days) than the 36-galllon extended tank on my 2015 (every 10-12 days), and because of the 26-gallon tank, I am only dropping $70-$75/tank now instead of hitting the $100 pump limit before. Based on this math, it sure feels like I am getting a lot better city/local gas mileage in my 2018 compared to my 2015.

48 gallon tank x 25 Miles/Gallon = (mind blown)

I spent some more time studying the FORScan change required if swapping OEM 26 gallon tank for Titan 48 gallon tank...

IPC: 720-03-01
As Built Value: 6003 D900 0067 (3D9 = 26 gallon tank)
Modified Value: xxx7 19xx xxxx (719 = 48 gallon tank)

Below is how the math works out on this...

Comments in FORScan spreadsheet:
4 4A=30 Gal, 5 07=34 Gal, 5 EA=40 Gal, 7 19=48 Gal, 7 65=50 Gal, 8 22=55 Gal (This parameter is programmed to accept 4 digit Liters in this format XXX.x 55gal converts to liters of 208.198L so 208.2L rounded then drop the decimal 2082 decimal to HEX equal 822.

kdjasper calculation validations:
26 gal = 98.4207 liters = 984 decimal = 3D8 hex ... (985 decimal = 3D9 As Built Value)
30 gal = 113.562 liters = 1136 decimal = 470 hex (FORScan comment in error)
34 gal = 128.704 liters = 1287 decimal = 507 hex
40 gal = 151.416 liters = 1514 decimal = 5EA hex
48 gal = 181.7 liters = 1817 decimal = 719 hex ... this should be precise as no rounding was needed going from liters to decimal
50 gal = 189.271 liters = 1893 decimal = 765 hex
55 gal = 208.198 liters = 2082 decimal = 822 hex

So, it looks like Distance to Empty (DTE) could even be more accurate with the 48 gallon Titan tank over the 26 gallon OEM tank because of the 3D8/3D9 caused by rounding for the 26 gallon tank calculation.

Now that my head is into this, I am confident swapping out for the bigger tank when it becomes available.

Be careful with a metal tank. I have see a lot people with rust and condensation issues. That is why I go with Titan so I don't have to worry about that type of stuff.
