What size fuel cells are the big 3 using in their current fleets of diesel pickups?
So NO ONE here drives a diesel truck newer than 2000?
Just asking how much fuel you put in from empty
1999 and up ford super dutys either a 29 or 38 gallon tank depending on wheel base.
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! 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.
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.
My 05 2500 HD shortbed with a duramax has a 28 gallon tank.
