I was looking through the Redbook website and it appears that up to and including 1988 the auxilliary fuel tank on the Troopy was still an optional extra. In 1989 it is not mentioned as an extra. Is this correct?

Willem,

After August 1988 dual tanks were standard. That is Japan production so probably the vehicles would have been 1st registered in 1989.

She...that is 'Rosie', is being kept as a project car. She and I had a long discussion about this on Tuesday morning when shen refused to start on the banks of the Murray. A new set of tonsils(points) got the show on the road again. Seeing as I have wrecked most of my vehicles I will try and restore this one. Trouble is the yard is getting fuller.

I was thinking of buying a white Troopy and painting it some hideous colour...maybe pink and lime green. I painted a Daihatsu those colours once. Was very popular with the 'Darlings'..................

My understanding that was tanks did not become standard until the 78 series, I think that you'll find that snorkel and tank were a bundled option.

I know this because when we were first looking at a troopy (some years ago) at work, it was an option.

I know this beacuse (also) a centre that i work with has a 98 troopy with single tank, no snorkel and an underslung spare.

I know this because (also, also) there are still quite a few hire vehicles getting around, (that we use on occasion) that only have single tanks and an underslung spare.

If you see a troopy without a factory snorkel, or without the rear door spare, chances are that it will only have one tank.
