Dee Zee Transfer Tank

 

If you’re looking at additional fuel storage for your truck you’ll no doubt run into both transfer tanks and auxiliary fuel tanks, and often there is a pretty big price difference even though they look pretty similar.  So what’s causing the price difference and which one do you need?

 

            Transfer Tanks are for the transfer of fuels.  This could be bringing extra fuel on a trip to fill up an ATV, or maybe you’re in construction and need to top off a generator.  They are primarily used for diesel but depending on the manufacture you can find tanks that are certified for other fuels.  The big difference is between a transfer tank and an auxiliary tank is that the transfer tank has to have the fuel pumped out, but this can be pumped to your truck's fuel tank. But in order to transfer the fuel you will need a transfer pump.  These are available as manual units where you either turn a crank or pump a handle or as 12 volt electric units that do the work for you.  These pumps will add anywhere from $90 to $350 to your total expenditure.
