Letter Re: An Aftermarket “En Route” External Fuel Tank Filling Apparatus

Have you seen this “Freedom Fill” apparatus? It is for trucks that have extra fuel tanks in their bed and it feeds fuel directly to their main tanks. No need to stop for a refueling at an unsafe location. What do you think? – David K.

JWR Replies: Other that its general high level of complexity with multiple points of failure–most notably that it uses EMP-vulnerable microprocessor–it looks captivating. Call me a dinosaur, but I prefer the traditional auxiliary fuel tank plumbing methods. OBTW, just think how long the O.J. Simpson “slow speed pursuit” could have gone on if the White Bronco had been equipped with one of these?
