Gas vs Diesel

Hello from Ohio, We have a new 2015 4000 Voltage. We were wondering if anyone has hauled diesel in the gas tank on the side of the camper. Thanks, Ron and Lisa

Good question. On the up side, it sure will teach those fuel siphoner's a lesson when they try to steal your gas!

I have a buddy with a Cyclone that opted for two fuel tanks and no generator, he is quite the solar freak...anyway. He linked his two tanks together such that the aft will transfer to the forward....then he ran a fuel line up to his pin, which he has a quick connect that feeds to his fuel neck and runs everything off an up fitter switch. Nice setup, but I like my genset.

That member on this site would be me. I removed the fuel filler & ground out the area that blocked it from taking the larger diesel nozzle. I use the extra fuel for my tow vehicle which works out fine. Any other questions about it?

There's been talk of crud in the two tanks, did you flush them out prior to putting in diesel?

I'm only using the front tank for diesel. Rear tank has gas for the generator.
No didn't flush either tank before using them. Haven't had any problems. I mainly use the front tank while traveling. Once fuel in T.V. gets 1/2 tank or so is when I add. As hose isn't long enough I fill a 5 gallon gas can & transfer that into the truck. I do that a couple of times depending upon where the next cheapest fuel is. I use Gasbuddy for that info.
