Re: 1700 Miles On A Tank

Technically.............. it would be 3 fill ups:

and an oversized mid-mounted gas tank that combines with a second frame-mounted tank and a third auxiliary tank in the bed for a maximum capacity of 170 gallons

would that be three fill points or do multiple tank pickups just have you turn a valve/flip a switch?

I know some Ford super-duty trucks at some model point offered dual tanks that used a switch.

I know someone that had 2 tanks and 2 fill nozzels thought it was awhile back. However - in this case it does sound like there are 3 distinct (or at least 2 distinct tanks). Even if they just flipped a switch to use - they would unlikely be feed by one fill tube.

Ahh okay so like a semi with two tanks then. Each one has to be filled on its own but is drawn on as a single or a switched supply.

...a truck that has a GVWR of 19500lbs.

Won't a CDL be required to pilot this thing, A la International CXT?

No. 26,001lb is the magic number. »cdltrainingconsultants.com/Who_N···DL_.html

Needing one for the CXT is a myth too. International was smart enough to keep the rating just below the federal level requiring a CDL. It's GVWR is 25,999. Driving the truck itself does not require one. If you pull a trailer over 10,000lbs then you will need one.

This is the Ram 5500, not the 2500. People interested in the 5500 are not cross shopping the 2500 unless they seriously don't need the capability of the 5500. The 5500 comes with a 52 gallon tank and a 22 gallon auxiliary tank to begin with. So the additional tank is 96 gallons. An extra 700lbs on a truck that has a GVWR of 19500lbs.

Wrong with a basic Drivers license it's 26,000 GVWR

Ummm - you quoted the wrong post... Lurch already stated the correct weight for a CDL in the post DIRECTLY above your post.

In the one you quoted - Lurch was only stating the extra weight of the extra tank. It has nothing to do with the CDL weight.

With a 26,000 GVWR no cdl. 26,000 GVRW pulling a trailer 10,001 pounds = CDL
