    Be sure to have a poket full of money when you fill them. LOL

    That was my thinking also Nash, but at least once it done, he can go a long way before he reaches in his pocket again

    Understand that...went by Murphy's and put in $100 and gave me about 1/2 tank. Opened up the valve to make sure it flows ok and was empty by morning after filling up the OEM So, about another $200 worth to fill the aux tank. Between the OEM and Aux tank should be able to make around 1000 miles.

    welcome to my world. I have a 100 gal tank on my MH so I know what you will fill each time you go to fill it up. BTW at Murphy this morning gas was $3.18 a gal. As of now the MH is showing almost full so I will start topping it off in the morning, just hope it does not jump back up before I can get there

    Hey where did you find that Tank /tool box combo? I have been thinking of doing the same thing, we live in Brooksville Fl. and last summer we went camping on Lake Lanier NE of Atlanta took us 3 1/2 tanks of gas to get there.

    A friend of mine bought a used Chevy Duramax and the tank came with it. Not sure why my friend did not want it, but I grabbed it from him. Keep an eye on craigs list/ebay for them. If you want new, check out RDS out of Perry, FL. They had the best prices for a new one. Even cheaper if you get one from one of their vendors.
