Yes, and I love it. I used a 2nd stock MGT tank, but you can use anything that fits. I had to mount mine in the opposite facing direction from the stock position, to make it fit, and drill a few small holes to mount it.

I've run the fuel lines both possible ways: ie: tee'd off before and after, so it sips fuel from both tanks at once, or in series, where the outlet of one tank goes to the inlet of the 2nd, and from there to the carb.

I found the latter to be a more stable setup - wouldn't get any hiccups that way or tuning issues... but your experience may differ. I've found equal people that hate either setup lol, so experiment with what works best.

if you have any questions just ask.

I ran the dual tanks as well with my old MGT 8. Worked great. I plan to do the something to my MGT that gets delivered tomorrow.

On a side note, anyone ever tried heli fuel in the truck> I know that it's tough to keep temps down in the engine, so maybe the extra oil will help?
