1996 f250 460 fuel tank swap to fuel cell

I have had multiple problems with both fuel tanks. From the rust to the pump to the filter line ceased to the engine. Im wanting to install one 32gal fuel cell in the front tank spot. I use my truck for trail rides or a lil mud here and there. Every once and a while ill drive it everyday for a week or so just to keep it rollin. What type of fuel tank, pump, sending unit, regulator, pre filter and filter do u recommend.

On my F350, I run a summit 20 gallon, a Holley hp150, Holley regulator and summit filters pre and post pump filters. I think they are 100 and 10 micron, respectively. Just make sure you have enough pressure for the efi. I think it's like 40-45psi.

Have you found a supplier of a 32 gallon front (mid-ship) tank?

My F250 4X4 has a 19 gallon mid ship tank and I don't see how anything bigger would fit.

But if there is a larger replacement tank available - that fits in the same location without needed for any other modification, I would be interested.

I just have mine in the bed. Takes up room, but easy to install and use.
