LET'S TALK FUEL
Below we will be covering two very important topics when it has to do with your sprinter vans. One, is how to prevent yourself from having a $30,000 repair charge and two is how to how to increase your sprinters gas capacity!
SAVE YOURSELF FROM A POTENTIAL $30,000 REPAIR COST
We told you earlier that you could potentially save yourself from a $30,000 repair charge. Let's get into that. Often times it can be overlooked that sprinter vans take DIESEL fuel, not gasoline. The easy mix up in nozzle choice at the pump can be costly.... we are talking $25,000+ costly. It is nothing you want to mess around with and for this reason we introduce you to the FUEL ANGEL.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The fuel angel is a misfuel prevention device that blocks gasoline or DEF nozzles from being able to be inserted into the diesel tank of your sprinter van.
You may think to yourself, I know that my sprinter takes diesel why would I make that error? It's not so much the vehicle owner we are worried about its the spouse, kid, friend or friendly renter who is filling up and doesn't realize that your sprinter van takes diesel. During the lifespan of your vehicle I highly doubt you will be the only person driving it, in that case this affordable attachment could be a great investment to help prevent from any major misfueling mishaps.
Once your fuel angel is installed only a diesel fuel nozzle will fit!

LETS STAY ON TOPIC OF FUEL
HUNNY DO WE HAVE ENOUGH GAS?
It's in eerie feeling being on empty, we have all been there. Owning a sprinter van usually means that you will be on the road more, traveling greater distances & going to some remote places. Traveling greater distances entails being in situations where a gas stations may not be accessible as frequently. Those on the road frequently know first hand that there may not be a place to fill their tanks for hundreds of miles. This is where a high capacity fuel tank comes in to play.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
These high capacity fuel tanks replace your factory 24 gallon tank with a 47 gallon tank. With your current tank set-up there is empty space in front and in back of the tank. When you take out your old tank the new 44 gallon tank fits right into where your old tank was, plus filling in those empty spaces. This tank fits perfectly in the underbelly of your van with nothing sticking outside the trim line of your vehicle.
With this new tank you will be able to roughy double your distance and help alleviate the worry of running out of gas on the road. Having to stop for fuel late at night is not at the top of our bucket list. Not sure about you all but being able to cut down on trips to the pump maximize our time on the road is a win, unless we are stopping for In-n-out then and if then its worth getting off the road!
Below is a comparison of an upgraded SB tank vs a standard tank!
