It says diesel on them because they are only meant to be used with diesel. Diesel is not as combustible as gas so that why you can carry it in your bed. If you want extra then gets some gas cans and a mount or a fuel cell.

Check out the gas tank for an old Bronco II. It fits where the spare tire currently does, behind the axle between the frame rails. Might not be a bad option for you.

Aux tanks or transfer tanks are just that for diesel. Diesel is not flammable, where as gasoline is. They are both combustible but for DOT legality, gas cannot be transported in any other container than one DOT approved. Why do you need a different tank? Just add an additional one that will transfer over or feed into the normal tank. Or get a BII tank and make it work. Also, transfer tanks cannot directly feed the engine, they must first fill the stock, OEM tank.

A fuel cell is basically a gas tank that is made for a racing/off road environment. They are designed to withstand punctures and fuel leakage from roll-overs, generally are made out of thin(but strong) metals and are mounted in the bed of a truck, trunk of a car, or in the original place of the stock tank.
