G'day, After putting up with, the almost impossible, tuning combinations using Gas/Unleaded I've decidec to go with unleaded only. The fitting of the 146L fuel tank from Long Range Automotive is to take place within 3 weeks, I'm wondering has anybody had any dealings with this company whether positive or negative, I'd be interested in feed back? Has anybody fitted their water tanks?

G'day Truckster, Depending on your vehicle they have a number for each, as far as I know, but if you go to their website you can ask questions yourself. Their responce is usually pretty quick, as an example, one tank they have is a wedge shaped stainless steel tank, holds 73L for $530 approx, to fit in behind a cargo barrier in a '91' Nissan Patrol. Web address www.longrangeautomotive.com.au . There are not many pics but you should be able to get more info than I can give.

With regards to tuning probs with gas & fuel I use to have a 40 series with duel fuel I ended up puting on a kit from Crane ( same mob who import performance gear from USA ). The kit allows you to adjust your timing on the run and also had a rev limiter so suit either gas or fuel. But they are not cheap.

Have a LRA tank in an 80 series, for over 4 years now, with no cracks, leaks or any other problem, that would deter me from using their products again. Lot of the time it is used on rough roads.

Can't remember most of it.

Heya
Had a LRA replacement AUX tank fitted to my last Troopie (supplied by LRA - but fitted by my local agent) - the only comment I would make is don't overfill the tank. I topped it right up on first use and found there must be some sort of breather that allowed the diesel to dribble out. It made quite a mess in the garage before I noticed - then I thought it was leaking but this wasn't the case! No problem once I sorted this out.

I'm about to have another LRA tank fitted to my latest vehicle.

Cheers

G'day to all that posted replies, reinforced my own thoughts that I'm going with the right company for the job, LRA.
Getting the 146L fuel tank fitted and carring three jerry cans as well,two on a rack I'm engineering up in place of the spare wheel, one on the 20L jerry can mount on the camper. That should give me a range of 1250km approx?
Thanks again
