    What size fuel cells are the big 3 using in their current fleets of diesel pickups?

    Thanks

    So NO ONE here drives a diesel truck newer than 2000?

    Maybe someone can enlighten me if I'm wrong, but it seems GM pick-ups are notoriously short ranged. The older pick-ups came with what, 21 gal tank. I just used a work truck 2001 C3500HD utility body with a 6.5 turbo. After the long trip I went to fill it 'cause it was down to a quarter tank, and the truck STALLED on the way to the pump! :eek1: I made it to the gas station (barely) and it only took 18 GALLONS OF FUEL, WTF? What was GM thinking, this thing probably doesn't get 10mpg on the highway. :mad:

    Back to the thread at hand.

    My crewcab long bed 98 with a 454 has a 35 gallon tank so I assume all engine options would. I'm willing to bet tank size is based solely on chassis length. Out 97 extended bad short bed only has a 27 gallon tank but again, these are both gassers.
