I have a 1994 Dual Cab Hilux, and was wondering if anyone has fitted a 'LongRanger' fuel tank in. Due to the tank fitted on the drivers side of the vehicle, does this cause any problems with all the weight situated on one side of the vehicle? Thanks

Rik I have had a 130 litre Long Ranger tank fitted to an extra cab hilux(1996) for 5 years. To coin a phrase " I've been everywhere " and never had a weight distribution problem. The hilux suspension copes, no worries

Morrie, Did you notice any change in fuel economy due to the added weight or any effect on power? I have a '90 Dual Cab Diesel and have been considering fitting a bigger tank. Cheers, Sam.

Morrie,
That's good news, im heading off across the Simpson in two weeks, so the extra fuel will be a big help! So there was no additional sagging of the springs, or no extra springs required to keep the car level? Thanks for your response.

Rik,
I had a 130L longranger fitted to my 97 hilux about 3 years ago. I am very happy with the extended range it gives me. To answer your question, yes the car does sag a little more to one side, especially when the tank is full but you get used to that and pack the ute to compensate. After many years of bush bashing, corigated roads, boulders and tuffs of grass hitting the underside it has travelled well. Enjoy your trip, I will be in birdsville for the races...
