Any ideas for increased fuel capacity?

Just wondering if anyone has come up with an idea to expand the fuel storage capacity on the sprinter? An extra 10-15 gallons would be nice!

There are add on tanks that connect to the original. Pricey. You would also need to be aware of increased weight.

I've seen people with jerry cans on a hitch mount carrier. I contemplated the larger tank from the sprinter store but seemed expensive and wife makes me stop every 200 miles or so anyway.

Hitch storage platform

Good question RedLdr1. I too am looking for a great quality hitch platform to store extras like - water, jerry can of Diesel, and perhaps a 20# LP tank etc.. I am dying to hear what options are out there....

Don't know for sure but I'd call Lexington container in Lexington KY. They have great Kerry cans, ammo cans and accessories. Might be able to help.

Harbor freight
Best deal, they have a black steel one and a light aluminum one
With their 20 percent off coupon you can get the steel one for about 50 bucks, aluminum one was around 100.

I'm looking for a hitch mounted old "jeep" style carrier that will hold a spare tire and either one or two jerry cans. It seems everything for Jeeps is now the swing away style rather than hitch mounted. I'm beginning to think I'm going need to have one welded up from a tire carrier base...
