    Anyone got any ideas on a cheaper bigger gas tank ? I have the 2014 , only thing I don't like is small tank going on long trips . What's my options , would the new 2016 tanks fit on it ?????

    The new tanks will fit, but you gonna shit yourself when the cost is seen.

    Your best option is the 46 gallon Titan tank.

    I tried to get around that issue with in bed mounted tanks that gravity fed into my factory one and I could not find a safe legal way without buying an external pump. That cost was more than the Titan tank.

    Back in the day it was easy to get a bed mounted gas tank. 70's. I think I paid $150 for everything. 50 gallons. 1975 actually. Not now. No custom made anymore. Liability/legal issues. Titan tank^^^^^ as mentioned above or save a lot $$ and get some RotoPax fuel/water containers.

    Toyota makes a 36 or 38 gallon for the 2016 Tundra. I don't see how it could be a problem for you to get one installed from them.

    The 2016 trucks have a 38 gallon tank as standard, I don't see how they won't install one for you after you buy it, although they would likely charge for labour.

    Here's a TF tank for a '16 CM 4wd. You can select other configurations. If you live in CA, you can't buy it.

    I've seen a couple members on TundraTalk post about installing - maybe here, too. Try a search.

    I doubt it's a driveway job.

    Just a few, more to come
    Running the 46 Gallon TranferFlow tank and havent looked back. Good investment of $1200 IMO, especially if you do it when the truck is new and keep it a while and drive a lot.
    When towing and getting 8mpg the stock 26gallon (20 gal to fuel light) tank goes by way too fast, especially in rural areas like out here crossing NV to UT or AZ. My 46 gallon tank has impressed with range when towing and even better when empty. Fuel light comes on around 39 gallons, multiply by my 8mpg towing and my 16 cruising empty(lifted on 35's) and I get 312 and 624 miles. Pretty respectable range
