Inside the fuel tanks of a 747A Boeing 747 can carry 48,445 gallons (183,380 liters) of fuel in a labyrinth of tanks so large that people can actually walk and crawl inside them. Can't believe it? Just watch. (gizmodo.com) More...

The "aux" tank is in the stabs "center box" in the fuselage, not the stabs themselves. Just to clarify for those that are not aware. :)
Perhaps even more amazing than that is the fuel system on the B-747/400 model is now computer controlled as opposed to the older versions which had a fuel control panel that would make most professional flight engineers weep with joy.
