Alliance Truck Parts announced the availability of new aftermarket cylindrical fuel tanks offered with an online configuration tool Thursday in Louisville, Ky.
Alliance Product Segment Manager Scott Henry said the tanks are targeted primarily to truck owners and fleets in need of a replacement tank after a wreck or those looking for an upgrade from their original equipment.
The online configuration program allows customers to spec their tank and supplies a corresponding part number. A printable ticket then could be taken to any Freightliner, Sterling or Western Star dealer, though the tank is compatible with all truck makes.
The configuration tool is available at alliancetruckparts.com and allows customers to specify truck make, tank capacity, finish and fill-neck placement.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
