Hi,

Has anybody put big fuel tanks on their D-MAX?
How big did you go, who did it and are you happier?
Comments any please?

Thank you

I had the 137L Long Range Tank supplied with my new D-Max back in 2014. It was supplied and fitted by TJM as part of the initial purchase.

This give me a range of 1,000+L/100 normal highway and I have had 650L/100 towing our 2500kg van. I normally work on a safe range of 550K when towing which is a long way to drive without a stop.

Be aware that the fuel gauge and distance to empty do not move until you have used about 40 litres but then they are spot on.

1000L/100 is 10 litres for ONE kilometre, or 1 litre per 100 metres.
Do you mean 1000+km range?

I also had a long range tank fitted to my D-Max when purchased in 2016. I do a lot of remote outback touring so strength was a very importaqnt factor. I have an ARB plastic tank about 134 litres and I could not be happier. Extreamly strong and lighter than the original tank.I have a tray configuration and it will take a hi-flow pump at full bore right up to full, it may, or it may not be the same for a tub configuration.

Have a look at ENMACH industries web page, they have a whole range of tanks, and if there is not one to suit, they will build you one, very well, priced and you cannot fault the service
