The Birth of TITAN Fuel Tanks

TITAN Fuel Tanks launched in 2003 to answer the frustration
experienced by diesel truck
owners, who, buying the latest and greatest diesel trucks found themselves spending too much
time searching for the next diesel stop

and limited as to destination. For those towing trailers or
traveling long distances, this mean
t frequent stops and buying fuel from the closest and oft
-
times
high
-
dollar stations.

Searching for the Ideal Fuel Tank

From the start, the developers of TITAN Fuel Tanks wanted a lightweight tank that would fit
perfectly and, at the least, double the vehi
cle’s fuel range


without taking up valuable cargo
space in the bed, interfering with hitches or accessories, and without detracting from the
vehicle’s beauty. The first TITAN Fuel Tanks were made of standard Linear Polyethylene
similar to the original eq
uipment tanks they would replace. Despite the fact that these early tanks
were difficult to install and required a high degree of expertise as well as vehicle modifications
(cutting and welding), customers came from far and wide to buy them.

The TITAN Tank


Double Fuel Capacity and Superior Impact Resistance

Two years later, when a chemical engineer suggested High
-
Density Cross
-
Linked Polyethylene
(XLHDPE), the folks at TITAN jumped right on it. A space
-
age material that bonds on
the
molecular level, XLHDPE is chemical resistant and extremely durable. It made the TITAN Tank
nearly indestructible, doubled fuel capacity, and extended vehicle range. It also made TITAN’s
5
-
year limited warranty possible.



Why We Are #1

Why TITAN Tanks A
re the Best You Can Buy

The bodies of all TITAN Fuel Tanks are made of one remarkable material: High
-
Density Cross
-
Linked Polyethylene (XLHDPE).

XLHDPE is one of those space
-
age materials which performs amazing feats, such as superior
performance in any we
ather, in extreme hot or cold temperatures. With its seamless design, the
TITAN Fuel Tank is one piece


and very tough.

The Difference Is Molecular Bond

The term “Cross
-
Linked” means that the molecular “chains” that make up the polymer are
chemically bond
ed together, or “bridged,” to form a continuous three
-
dimensional structure. This
allows impact energy to be dissipated throughout the chain of molecules
.

TITAN (Cross
-
Linked) vs. OEM (Linear)

20 times the environmental stress crack resistance

10 times the

molecular weight

5 times the impact strength

Superior Chemical and Impact Resistance

Compared to commonly used materials like Linear Polyethylene and many grades of stainless
steel tanks, Cross
-
Linked Polyethylene has the widest range of chemical resistan
ce and superior
impact strength. TITAN Tanks won’t corrode, are especially well
-
suited for bio
-
diesel
applications, and are much less subject to the formation of condensation.

U.S. Department of Defense Standards

On the battlefield performance isn’t a luxu
ry, it’s a necessity. That’s why the U.S. Department of
Defense uses the very same processes and materials as TITAN for fuel tanks in some of the U.S.
Military’s combat vehicles.

TITAN has hundreds of dealers across the United States. TITAN Diesel Tanks
are sold
throughout the U.S., Canada, and Australia, wherever American diesel trucks roll.
