  1. The point is, all the major truck players, except GM, offer larger tanks.
  2. 2021 Suburban fuel tank 28 gallon vs 2020 was 31 gal 2021 Tahoe fuel tank 24 gallon vs 2020 was 26 gal
  3. A gallon of gas weighs 6 pounds and yeah the only advantage of a smaller tank is to chase government numbers and look better on paper with payload capacities as these tests must be done with a full tank. There are NO real-world advantages of a smaller tank. There are lots of real-world advantages with a larger tank (longer range, less frequent stops, saving time, saving money, reducing hassle, etc) and NO real-world disadvantages. Also your truck doesn't need to be on empty to take a rest stop. Not sure why people on here need their tank size to be equivalent to their bladder size, that's ridiculous. Stop when you want, you don't need to be on empty to stop. Or if that's important to you, only fill the tank half full. If you are worried about extra weight only fill up a few gallons at a time, that's even better LOL. Ford, Ram and even Toyota offer larger tanks, time for GM to get it together.
  4. GM decreased their fuel tank size by 2 gallons and now have one of the smallest fuel tanks and the only major truck brand to not offer an optional larger tank size. The only advantage of a smaller fuel tank is to do better on a government test and show better numbers on paper. GM really needs to step up and have a larger tank option!
  5. Yes that is accurate. Both tanks will be getting smaller. 2021 Suburban fuel tank 28 gallon vs 2020 was 31 gal 2021 Tahoe fuel tank 24 gallon vs 2020 was 26 gal
  6. Both Ford and Ram offer optional larger fuel tanks. They are getting the best of both, payload based on smaller tank, optional larger tank if you want/need it. I guess my question is why does GM not offer an optional larger fuel tank?
  7. Actually, 3.73 gears are offered on the 2020 1500s. 3.73 gears are offered as part of the Diesel off road package on LT and RST. The 3.0L diesel is exclusively matched to the 10 speed. 3.73 gears are also offered with the Custom max tow package with the 5.3L and 6 speed on Custom trim trucks.
  8. Trump rolls back fuel economy standards and emissions standards. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/business/autos/2020/03/31/trump-rolls-back-obama-mpg-rules/5093643002/ There ya go, can cut out the beuqacratic bs and engineer the best truck, no excuses
  9. Diesel off road package https://www.tfltruck.com/2019/06/chevy-silverado-to-get-diesel-off-road-package/
  10. So there are definitely advantages of a larger fuel tank, especially if you are really using your truck. There are not any advantages of a smaller tank, except for a small amount of weight savings, as far as I can tell. I can understand that not everyone needs the benefits that a larger fuel tank provides but I guess my question is why does GM not offer the option? Ford and Ram offer different sized fuel tanks.
  11. A larger tank is better. If you want to stop and walk around, you can at any point, you don't have to be out of fuel to do so. If you tow a large trailer, fuel range shrinks substantially.
  12. Is it the weight of the extra material needed to make the tank 2 gallons bigger or the weight of the fuel or both? I would think the extra plastic for a larger tank would be practically nothing. The weight of the fuel would be12 lbs I guess. I am assuming weight is such an issue for EPA MPG?? In the real world I wouldn't think anyone is concerned with a few pounds.
  13. It looks like a Chevy 3.0 Duramax offload package is coming. Not sure if its got the Trailboss lift but it does have the tires. Also its got 3.73 gearing which will be great for the woods. https://www.tfltruck.com/2019/06/chevy-silverado-to-get-diesel-off-road-package/
  14. So previous short box GM trucks had 26 gallon tanks, anyone know why for the new model they shrunk by 2 gallons to 24? Yeah GM should at least offer the option of a larger tank. I'm all for giving customers the choice.
