One company that comes to mind is Titan Fuel tanks! I would contact Titan Fuel Tanks to see if they have a tank of that size. I know they offer a liquid transfer tank that fits a 3500 RAM truck. Another corporation is Transfer Flow they make a 109 gallon tank so, I would contact them also to see if a 150 gallon tank can be made.

Transporting a tank that big, you might want to check into USDOT rules and the CFR's about portable fuel tanks and placarding hazardous material.

Yep, on the farm we stay at or below 100 gallons of gas or diesel to avoid placarding and licensing requirements. All our tanks are true auxiliary tanks with no connection to vehicle tank. Each has a pump and nozzle. Just easier to stay within the law and move from vehicle to vehicle as required.

Look at RDS tanks out of Florida. I use the 60 gallon diesel with 6" tool box on top. I can use a tonneau cover over it.

Also look at ATI. (Aluminum Tank Industries)
They have a good selection of DOT refueling and auxiliary tanks.

I have an ATI Tank 46 gallon in bed gravity tank. It is one of the best investments Iíve ever put in a truck.

It fits below my tonneau cover including the fill spout and since I have a short bed it fits nicely in front of my fifth wheel.

Quality is great and they can make special tanks if you want something different. Iím getting 1300 - 1500 miles on the combined 77 gallons.

Towing my fiver, 14,500 lbs, I get 11 mpg. Iíve went 750 miles before fueling up.

Good luck!

USDOT regs not a problem. This truck will be used offroad in Baja mostly as a chase/ support vehicle. Remote fueling etc.. for dirt bikes in some pretty far from civilization spots.

Transfer Flow is in Chico, CA.......dunno where that is, but at least it's on your side of the planet. I have the Trax3, they make several tanks. Very pleased.

You can actually carry 140 gallons but it has to be in a DOT approved container. 109 gallons would be okay.
