Try Opposite Lock, ARB, TJM, Ironman I am sure that they will be able to help.

Opposite Lock site Ranger/BT50 Aux tank

The BT50 is a Freestyle Tray Back not a Style side.
Contacted TJM who only want to fit a Long range tank, I want someone to fit a BT50/Bravo tank to the drivers side of the Vehicle.

I have an earlier Mazda b2600 Freestyle ute with an aftermarket tank fitted in place of the original, went from 65ltr to 125ltr.
This may be the only option as there's not a lot of room underneath a freestyle for an aux tank.

Mark, be forewarned.
If you're asking around looking for someone who makes and fits them, keep in mind that new legislation requires them and the installation be certified by an engineer. A very costly process for a 1 off and if you fail an inspection.

When you say costly do you know how much are we talking about. I don't think it would be an outrageous price tanks are usually fitted and an inspection plate in attached to the vehicle by a the authorised installer. I have only ever had a mod plate fitted for rear seats and that was only $50 so if a fuel tank was to expensive no one would get them.

I have fitted a Long-Ranger replacement fuel tank and had an auxilliary tank made for my Toyota 79 Series Dual. Both certified as per New South Wales registration requirements and cost of certification was $300.00 for the inspection.

The key is make sure you are dealing with someone reputatable whose product meets the ADRs, and secondly who are competent to ensure fitment will meet the State registration requirements. And of course don’t fit it unless it will in fact be installed to ensure it does meet requirements.

I have fitted Long-ranger tanks on a three different vehicles over 15 years and would not hesitate to recommend them.

And they are very familiar with New South Wales certification requirements and attended to it without any problems.

Enmach Industries in Bundaberg have a large range of fuel tanks and ARB are one of their distributors I got a brochure from my local ARB in mackay several months ago with a range of auxiliary tanks that they could fit under my patrol ute.

One of these under the tray would be the easiest solution:

I have a Enmach Poly 80 litre under tray slimline Poly tank DPRV80S-MK mounted under my Mahindra Pikup Tray, combined with the main tank it gives my a 160ltrs touring range. I purchased mine through TJM in Darwin.



I use a Dual filler setup with gravity feed from the poly tank to the main tank, it's a very simple setup. -- I reckon that you might be able to do a similar setup on your BT50.

Thank You.

Whilst at the Mechanic I was told to keep a Eye on the Chassy rails as He had heard that Ute's with Pump up help shocks had cracked the Chassy!!
Has anyone heard of This & got a Solution ?

I don't think the shocks crack the chassis it's more like a big load on the tray. Most manufactures claim their 4 cylinder utes will carry 1 ton in reality 500kg is enough because the springs and chassis aren't heavy duty enough to handle it so people upgrade their suspension then sometimes things start breaking.
