Transfer Flow

Transfer Flow introduced its 40-gallon in-bed auxiliary fuel tank system, which features a small footprint with maximum versatility. 

The design of the 40-gallon fuel tank makes it compatible with almost any full-size diesel truck, including 1/2-ton pickups, trucks with utility beds, RamBox equipped trucks, and those with a factory installed 5th wheel prep package. Because of its low height, it also fits under most standard tonneau bed covers, according to the manufacturer. 

The 40-gallon fuel tank operates with Transfer Flow's automatic fuel transfer TRAX 3 technology. For safety, fuel is pumped, not gravity fed, from the auxiliary tank to the main tank at pre-determined fuel levels while the vehicle is in operation. The system comes with a dash-mounted LCD display that conveniently shows the percentage of fuel in each tank while also notifying you when a fuel transfer is in progress. 

The 40-gallon fuel tank is manufactured from American-made 14-gauge aluminized steel with a recessed cover box where the fuel tank sending unit, rollover valve, and fuel filter come preassembled. It's powdercoated for a with a satin black finish, has internal baffles to prevent fuel slosh, and comes complete with all parts needed for installation.

Aftermarket refers to a secondary market of the automotive industry and covers the installation of vehicle parts after the sale of the vehicle to the consumer. Aftermarket parts are parts that are installed on a vehicle once it's been sold to the end user. Sometimes parts are installed "aftermarket" because an owner wants higher performance equipment or alternative parts than what is installed at the factory.
