2012 Ford F250 Fuel Tank

Today I was looking into more info on the new F250 I got this past weekend and noticed that F250s with the 156" wheelbase come with a 26 gallon fuel tank but that's listed under "SuperCab". I guess I was under the impression that they all came with a 37.5 gallon tank.

From Ford Specs Site:

35 gallons (6.2L V8 gas engine)

26 gallons (6.7L Power Stroke™ Turbo Diesel on 137", 142" and 156" wheelbases)

37.5 gallons (6.7L Power Stroke™ Turbo Diesel on 158" and 172" wheelbases)

I am assuming that the 37.5 gallon will be a simple bolt in upgrade, I also noticed some thread about a Titan 50 gallon tank?

Those of you have upgraded to the 50 gallon tank, does it hang down much lower than the stock tanks? How does the skid plate compare that is provided? Ford also has the ability to reprogram the computer to recognize the added fuel capacity which reflects on our "Miles to Empty"?

Thanks!

Well I know for a fact that the 12 has a 26 gal tank. I ran out the other day when it said I had 24 gallons left and put 26.3 gallons in it.

I also have a Titan 51 gal on my 08 f250 and it does hang down about 7" past the Frame rail, all though mine doesn't have the skid plate on it so I don't know how much further it would be with it.
I also just had to have the front strap replaced on it cause it broke on me. It sucks walking up to your truck and seeing the fuel tank laying on the ground. So I had to jack it up and put a ratchet strap on it to keep it up.

I'm thinking of seeing if a f350 37 gal tank will fit and going to a junk yard and picking one up from there and putting it under my truck for the 12.

Silver08,

I'm thinking about swapping out the 26 gallon tank for the 37.5 gallon tank.

I can't imagine walking out and seeing the tank laying on the ground, not a good feeling I imagine!

I'm looking into the 37.5 tank from Tasca. I'm guessing the only think I'll have to swap are the straps and tank, everything else should just bolt in place.

If I remember, to put a stock 37 gallon tank into a truck that came with a 26 gallon, you had to rearrange the DEF tank as well. I can't remember with the Titan's and others what all was involved, but it was a fairly simple swap.

For what its worth, I have a 50 gallon in my bed but I have an 8ft bed with CrewCab. I agree with you that Ford did not do anyone any good by adding 27 gal tank in the short bed. It is primarily due to the Piss Tank they added in 2011. If you peruse the headings on this forum you will find all kinds of options for tanks. One in Titan, another is TransferFlow. One is plastic the other steel.

I couldn't agree with you more. In fact, the only reason I went with a 8ft bed was to get the bigger tank and to be able to put a transfer tank in the bed and have room to store s I am in the process of moving and instead of paying $8000 for some retard to break my stuff I decided to do it myself, since I can break it as easy as they can I have to make about 6 trips at 550 miles one way pulling a small trailer over about three months to do the deed. I just couldn't justify having to stop every 300 miles for fuel. The other thing is that diesel down in the south is much less expensive than it is in the midwest because of the state taxes. I can fill up my OEM tank and my 50 gallon tank down here and take a load and return (1100 miles) on one fill up. That is about $316 at today's prices. That way I can stop when I want to stop not when my truck tells me to stop.

Another irrelevant factoid is that the new F150 Ecoboost that came out in 2011 had a short tank in it too, for only ONE YEAR (in the short bed model), then they started to put the 37 gallon tank in it in 2012. The tanks are not interchangeable, how dumb was that. That was the main reason why I went to a SD plus I was not getting the super-duper-supercalifragilisticexpialidosius milage that they were advertising. I got 14.1 and they were advertising 17 in town and 21 on the road. If you read on the F150 forums, about half are getting fantastic milage, some as high as 22 on the road and 18 around town, then there were trucks like mine that were getting 14, 13 and even 11. So the Ecoboost engine, while being a good overall design, is not operating like Ford had planned. Even the 4 cylinder Ecoboost is not getting OMG milage like some of the small V6's of other brands are getting. Ford has always had problems with fuel economy compared to the other makers, for some unknown reason.

2012 Ford F250 Fuel Tank

I have the Titan 50 gallon on a shortbed crew cab and love it. It hangs down about a inch lower than the stock tank and it longer. It kind of wraps around the fuel filter and extends towards the front of the truck more than the stock tank. You cannot use the skid plates if you have the FX4.
