I wasn't aware of anyone still making a 40-50 gallon tank for E-series any more. I've heard whispers that you can call someone (Drawing a blank on the shop name, think it was central CA? AeroTank or something?), but it was a 40 gallon, explicitly-diesel-only tank.
My van still has the 27-ish gallon Quigley cut-down tank, and on long road trips it always sucks to stop every 250 miles for fuel (I'd much rather stop every 400 miles to stretch... sometimes my occasional older passenger is grateful that the tank needs filled every 3 hours...
). It would afford me a lot more flexibility with fuel stops in Idaho/Nevada and also let me buy more of the good cheap stuff in Sparks before venturing into California...
I've had thoughts about finding a 55gal cutaway tank but I don't think it would physically fit on RB vans and I'd like to avoid adding a second fuel door even if it's a throwback to Fords earlier 90's pickups with dual tanks.
Anyone make -gas- E-series aftermarket tanks still? Pricing?
