Numerous government reports, studies and other lawsuits have already alerted heavy truck manufacturers of the foreseeable dangers involved with this design. While there are safer alternatives available, many truck manufacturers continue to insist on incorporating side saddle diesel fuel tanks into the design of their vehicles.
