Poll: Would you be interested in a larger fuell tank?
I've been having a conversation with a major aftermarket fuel tank manufacturer about making a bigger tank for our Transits. I volunteered to take an informal poll on the forum to see if there is sufficient demand for a larger tank. I'm not associated with the manufacturer in any way, this is for purely selfish reasons - I really want a larger tank.
The tank would meet all DOT, EPA, and CARB (California) requirements, so it would be 50 state legal. The manufacturer doesn't want to be identified at this early stage, so I can't provide more info.
My best guess is the tank would be around 45 gallons, instead of the 25 gallons we currently are stuck with.
However, the size of the tank affects the cost; a larger capacity tank can be made if it is made to use more of the available space.
So the poll questions are two-fold:
1) Would you pay more for a larger tank?
2) What is the maximum you'd pay for a larger tank?
Not a very scientific approach I know, but this is just to give the manufacturer an idea if there's a demand.
I'll start out with my response first.
