anything is possible but as far as i know they never came factory...Has anybody ever seen a fullsize with dual tanks? I do a lot of driving and a lot of it is far from gas stations- I was thinking it would be very useful for me to have dual tanks to extend my range by 300 miles or so. is this even possible?
The original switch would go where the rear window control switch is on the dashboard.You should look at a setup for a 79 f150 or f250 with dual tanks. Maybe you can find one at your local junk yard and pull the tank you need with the original switches for the cab. The tank might bolt on the frame but not sure cause the the bronco frame is a bit shorter.
Ziggy- I love your signature! How true! You have a very valid point to consider, about the additional weight of fuel. For me, that may not come into play as much as for some other people, though. This will mostly be a just-for-fun vehicle, leaving the towing and load hauling to what I hope to purchase soon, a 1979 Ford F250 XLT Extended Cab, of course with matching paint, wheels and tires to my same-year bronco (also hopefully soon-to-be purchased). Again, it is a valid point, and one to be carefully considered by most folks- load hauling is just not my primary goal with the truck. I appreciate your input and hope to get more thoughtful responses to future posts! Enjoy life,Just remember that as you go up in gas tank size, you're also adding weight to the back of the truck which will reduce your overall carrying capacity. By doing some quick math with a gallon of gas weighing 6.2 lbs. per gallon, you're looking at the following:
25 Gallon tank - 155 lbs. full
33 Gallon tank - 205 lbs. full
45 Gallon tank - 279 lbs. full
You'll be able to go farther, but you loose out on overall carrying capacity of you truck.
kyle7683- that is actually a good idea! Perhaps I could have something put in directly behind the front seats, so as not to kill much storage room. I will look into the possibilities- thank you for the suggestion!What about building a seperate fuel cell in the bed/trunk?
Just an idea
