Hi All, Can anyone help me out here or point me in the right direction? I have a 97 troopy without aux fuel tank. I have been looking for a replacement for the original tank of about 150l and not having much luck. Can find plenty of replacement tanks for the aux but I would like to keep the spare underneath if at all possible.
Regards, Peter

Heya
Cant help with a replacement of the main tank - but I know that LRA make a belly tank that fits in front of the main tank. It holds 95 litres and pumps into the main tank at the flick of a switch.

I'm about to get one fitted to my 2001 model so it will have three tanks and 275 litres capacity. I couldn't fit a replacement Aux tank as there is a water tank occupying some fo the space.

Cheers

Here is a list of available tanks from 4WD Sytems.

I came across this as I noticed they do a replacement main tank for the 80 series at 190L.

Not sure that they have one for the 97 troopie, they have them for 70, 73 and 75s

Cheers,

Chris

The extra tank would go behind the existing front tank over the rear tailshaft I would imagine. Which would involve removing/relocating the muffler and exhaust which in some states (should be all of them as we are operating under National rules) would be illegal to have a left hand side exiting exhaust.

Peter,
The exhaust already exit from the left hand side of the 78 series. I don't think that it is a law, what about all the vehicles with dual exhaust , BMW X5, Range Rover( I think ). Early model Rodeo's that the Police used in NSW had there exhaust on the left.

Wayne what I meant is that it would exit out the side, in front of the rear wheel as the space where it currently runs is taken up by the 3rd fuel tank.
