My half ton only has a 24 gallon tank and I have to drive atleast 20 miles a day, So I was thinking of installing a auxiliary tank. Not a big one, maybe 15 gallons. Anyone with experience (good or bad) installing a tank on your truck(s)?

you could just do the 35 gallon tank swap. get one from a scrap yard or dealer and switch it out for the one you have now and it will keep everything factory and, at least I would assume, a lot less of a headache

so much space under our trucks to put another tank, but that extra weight will play havoc on MPG's as MTally mentioned

I drive 116 miles per day and a 26 gallon tank is fine. Or did you mean 200 miles per day. As mentioned, swapping to the larger 34 gallon tank would be the easiest and cheapest option.

A 34 gallon tank is only 8 more gallons than the standard 26 gallon tank. It's NOT that much weight.........
