Large Fuel Tank

Last week I installed a 62 gallon S&B fuel tank in my 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. It replaces the 36 gallon factory tank. I also installed a Fass lift pump because Chevrolet did not install fuel pumps on the LML Duramax diesels. Instead, the injector pump sucked the fuel from the tank. A lift pump will extend the life of the injector pump.

I did the installation alone, and it went relatively smoothly. The worst parts were getting a face full of diesel fuel when separating one of the fuel line connectors and catching the drive shaft with my jaw when it dropped 2 feet after I separated it from the rear yoke. I still have a black eye from that, but the swelling of the jaw has subsided.

Having a 600+ mile range while towing, 1200+ while not towing, will be nice. That, paired with a fleet fuel card that gets the discounts the large truck fleets get, means I can be very selective on where I buy fuel.

Anyone interested in the fleet fuel card can PM me for more information.

Nice! Somehow they find a way to add 26 gallons to a tank and still fit it in place of the factory tank. It would be nice to have, but Im not sure Im ready to do it at this time. I have been considering getting a lift pump though. I have a 2013 Sierra 2500HD Crew Cab.

Nice job. Lol at the black eye. Bet you did some cussing on that one.

Don't forget you just reduced your truck payload by 182 pounds.
