RDS Diesel Install Kit for Auxiliary Diesel Fuel Tank - Fits 2000-Current Ford, 2011-Current Chevrolet and GMC, and All Dodge (Excluding 2013), Model# 011025
Install kit works for Ford Superduty (GAS)
Much like the tank I ordered I read all the reviews and found that they were helpful. The install kit arrived much faster than the tank so I had plenty of time to plan my install. I understand that these kits are for diesel only due to DOT regulations. I have a 2003 Ford F350 with the V-10 and could not find any straight answers regarding the fit of this kit. I read and was told that the fill pipe for the gas models had a smaller diameter. Mine measured 1.5 inches, just like the diesel models. I took the chance and it paid off. Everything fit perfectly and was easy to install. I gave it 4 stars because I believe the price was double what it needed to be and the kit required 4 hose clamps Vs. the two supplied. See the attached picture prior to adding additional clamps.

When I first thought about getting this product I was worried it would not work. The install was pretty simple, it only took about 15 mins. It works great no overflow problem. Which was my main concern. It even comes with a shut off just in case. Very happy with the rate of flow it keeps my factory thank full.

I put this on my 2011 f-350.took me about 1 hour.make sure you hook your hose up to it before you install it to your main fill line.(just saves you from having to do with very limited room).put the check valve on top.I had to put a hole in my bed,then hooked it in to my L-tank.it worked great! just turned the valve on and off we went.drove 4700 miles on my first trip pulling my fifth wheel.what a great time saver.left it on the whole time.except when I filled truck and L-tank.can't say enough good about it.

Went on a 2011 Ram 2500
This is the second time I have installed this kit. I just put it on my 2011 Dodge Ram 2500. It took a little more work to install it on this truck compared to my 03 Ram. I had to take the plastic wheel liner out. Then I took off the rubber house that goes between the steel line and tank. I probably cut that rubber piece in half and put the T piece in and put everything back together. Whole job probably took a couple hours. I also used a lift which makes it much easier.

The kit was a great purchase. Installed it on my 2000 F250 Powerstroke. Never had any trouble with it overflowing. My box is rusting and sagging so it was a TIGHT fit but I did get it in there. I had to go to the auto store to get a longer section of tubing because the tubes were not long enough to make the transition (bends). It works great and I would definitely recommend for someone wanting extra range and an auto fill!
This allows me to fill my aux tank when prices are down and not have to worry about filling it for many many miles. I did install a 1/4 turn shutoff before it just so I can gauge how much is left in my aux tank.

Easy install, but missing some clamps
Kit was super easy to install, took about 30min......but had to come up with a couple of small hose clamps as some were missing, but no big deal as I ran to the parts store to get an in-line filter anyway

This product works as described. I put a shut-off valve at the tank to be on the safe side, and because I use the tank to transport off road fuel as well. But there have been no leaks with this system and it keeps the tank topped off. The flow is a little on the slow side with the small diameter hose that comes with the kit, so don't wait until you're on empty to start the fuel flowing. Its an awesome item to have on long trips where you don't know if you'll find a station that has diesel, or you don't want to be at the mercy of fuel pump prices when you run low in the middle of a big city.

easy in stall
the ball valve has failed to close and i have lost many gallons of diesel from my aux tank to my main....just saturated the ground.going down the road the fuel transfers nicely,but leaving valve open to fill main when parked watch out.

The simplicity of this kit sold me. installing an axillary tank just became a 10 minute job instead of an hour.

fuel transfer kit
this kit , is the greatest, it is all inclusive! this is the second one I have bought and installed, if you have a tank, the valve is sized for standard size fuel outlet. the unique piece is the inline part With the flow regulator float ball.. when the factory tank is full, the flow restriction ball insures that, your FUEL is not pouring out the factory fuel cap and on to the ground. it contains all parts and fuel line to complete the job in about 45 minutes. and is an easy task. I have recommended this kit to friends.
