Same issue with all long range tanks

You pay ~$800+ for an extra 40ltrs. You can pick up 2 jerrys for $40.00 for the same increase...

I replaced both the standard tanks in our GU with LRA tanks. Capacity now 220 lts. Useable fuel load is just over 200 litres. Still have to carry three jerrys in the load area. The tanks have given me no problems so far, I fitted the replacement main tank (146 lts) myself and the 75lt sub tank was fitted by the vendors (ECB) choice of engineering mobs. They did the eng. certificate for both. One issue I did have was with the sub tank, it hangs down 50mm below the bottom of the chassis rail. After we put a small ding in it we thought better of postponing the suspension lift. Lifted her up 50mm, or so the brochure said. More like 100mm! Of course that lifted the rooftop tent's walls clear of the ground. They are being extended as I type. No sweat but, it's only money...

Problems with modifying things. Change something and there is always something else needs changing too.

Don't be too quick lengthening the sides of the canvas, give it a few years and spring sag will save a lot of the trouble :-)

I put a Longranger tank on my LC100 last year and I got an extra 130l for about $1000 as I remember. It is expensive but I haven't regetted it. The space where you would have put the jerrys is then free. The weight is lower. It is nice not to have to mess with jerrys. If the jerrys get damaged or leak it can be a problem.

G'day,

I'm on my second truck (1st HJ75, 2nd 04/5 Hilux) with an after market ARB LR tank and wouldn't be with out them. I don't miss the stuffing around with jerry can's at all and find the extra room is easierly filled with two extra cartons of Crown.

Regards,

Jason

When I had my hilux I purchased another hilux tank from the wreckers and mounted it on the other side. the filler was facing back but what the heck. I had to change the exhaust pipe a bit and put in a pump to the original tank alla nissan patrol and all was sweet for much less dollars.
