The site TFL Truck is reporting that the Toyota Tundra will finally get a 39-Gallon fuel tank. They are saying sources confirmed the news with them.
This information most likely came from the TRD Pro event they attended last weekend. Our guess is that the sources there confirmed they were working on it (similar to what the same sources told us at the Jackson, Wyoming event in August, 2013).
The truth is Toyota has needed to offer this size tank for a while especially for RV owners and tradesman living in areas where gas stations are sparse (like Canada or western U.S. states like Montana). These owners have lamented several times to us about the tiny gas tank.
No word on which model year it will be offered.
Here is the link to the TFL Truck story.
At the Toyota Tundra press preview, I asked point blank if they are going to respond to customer demand for a larger gas tank. The response, “it’s coming.”
There are times when your work or leisure activities might take you a fair distance away from the closest gas station. If you find yourself frequently exploring off-road trails, working on a large farm property or making long-distance drives through isolated areas, then you are probably all too familiar with that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach as you nervously eye the fuel gauge nearing empty. While it is always a good idea to carefully plan fuel stops along a long drive, not every eventuality can be planned for, and this can introduce a degree of uncertainty when it comes to fuel consumption.
Fortunately, there are a few options available to extend the range of your Toyota Tundra.
