Off Road Warehouse » Titan Fuel Tanks
Titan Fuel Tanks was started in 2003 in response to the voices of diesel truck owners who wanted to go farther-- longer. Without fear, they wanted to be able to go where the nearest fuel station might be hundreds of miles away. Anyone who has towed a trailer knows what it does to your mileage know how far it will be until the next station, you will often end up at overpriced stations that know they can gouge you and get away with it.
Our goal was simple; design a lightweight tank that would fit each vehicle perfectly, not impact cargo space and provide up to double a pickup’s fuel range. The tank had to operate without interfering with any functional parts of a vehicle, including the hitch, and – the real kicker – it had to look good. Because the last thing we want is to make your vehicle something you would be less proud of.
A chemical engineer introduced us to XLHDPE – Cross-linked High Density Polyethylene -- we knew right away that this was it. It’s superior to the linear polyethylene used in original equipment tanks because the molecules of the polymer weave more tightly together (thus the term ‘cross-linked’).
The cross-linked molecular weave makes our fuel tanks stronger, safer, and more durable than most anything on the market. It allows us to confidently back each one with our unparalleled lifetime warranty.
With the pieces in place, Titan extra-large-capacity, under-body replacement fuel tanks were born.

The Difference Is Molecular Bond
Linear polyethylene (OEM) tanks are the standard in many of today’s vehicle and replacement tanks. The material is durable, flexible and crack resistant. Titan’s “Cross-Linked” tanks are far superior to the standard linear polyethylene models.
The term “Cross-Linked” means the molecular “chains” that make up the polymer are chemically bonded together, or “bridged” to form a continuous three-dimensional structure. This allows impact energy to be dissipated throughout the chain of molecules.
TITAN (Cross-Linked) vs. OEM (Linear)
TITAN Fuel Tanks provide...
20 times the environmental stress crack resistance
10 times the molecular weight
5 times the impact strength
...of the OEM (Linear) models.
Superior Chemical and Impact Resistance
Compared to commonly used materials such as Linear Polyethylene and many grades of metal tanks, Cross-Linked Polyethylene has the widest range of chemical resistance and superior impact strength. TITAN Tanks won’t corrode, are especially well-suited for bio-diesel applications, and are much less subject to the formation of condensation.
U.S. Department of Defense Standards
On the battlefield, performance is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. That’s why the U.S. Department of Defense uses the very same processes and materials as TITAN for fuel tanks in many of the U.S. Military’s combat vehicles.
