Dual Tanks to 1??
« on: April 08, 2019, 09:36:19 PM »
So I've got the dual 20 tanks in my '85 K20... I recently got a box off of a M1008 CUCV that only has the filler for 1 tank... So is there some sort of connection system that I can keep the 20s and just have to fill the one filler and a fuel line between the tanks to fill both at once?? Kind of a mouthful I know but I don't quite know how to go at this. I don't want to put a rear in-between the frame, and since my truck is really thirsty I wanna keep both tanks if possible. Thanks!

theres no setup that you can buy. but you can custom make something, some have put something like a drain valve on the bottom of the tanks so they lever each out. but that can be dangerous and you could snag it on something. you could plumb a fuel pump into one tank to pull it from the other.

Thanks Irish_Alley. I was thinking about something like that, I just didn't know if anyone has tried it yet.

http://forum.73-87chevytrucks.com/smforum/index.php?action=profile;u=11746 is the profile. but maybe im mistaking that it was him, did a search on post by him and cant find it, starting to think it wasnt him. but im pretty sure it was a white lifted crew cab
