I have a diesel rodeo twin cab 1993 model with a long range fuel tank.
On the side it has a sticker and I can just make out the words "out of town" but can't read the phone number on the sticker, thanks to used car yard spraying everything in sight with black paint. I' d like to know how many litres it holds and how many litres are useable. thanks in advance for any info.

Wipe over the sticker with turps, and the paint should come off and enable you to read the sticker.

you have a "long ranger fuel tank" made by "out of town 4wd" of barnsley [ newcastle] 02 49533288 give them a ring. i have one of their tanks, an unleaded crew cab rodeo 1997, they claim 112lt, i say 108lt usable 100lt going further is ok but cut out with fuel surge hard on the nerves.

Thanks Peter, Local 4wd shops have confirmed that its about 110 to 112 ltrs capacity. I have put up to 90 ltrs in it but I was a bit concerned as the fuel light comes on when It takes 70 ltrs to fill it. Being a diesel I didnt want to be stuck in traffic with an empty tank as its not that convenient to run out of fuel even if you have a few ltrs in a jerry can in the back to get you going.

fitting a bigger tank in a rodeo affects the fuel gauge. my gauge only starts to drop below full after 45 lt approx has been used and the warning light first flashes with about 25 lt left and stays on all of the time with 15 lt left. i thought it was the fitting of the fuel pickup but when i moved it into my 2000 model crew cab i was very carefull but the result was the same. if you cant fill it properly check the fuel intake hose for kinks and an air pocket.

Peter , My tank is about the same as yours, I get 480km before the fuel gauge moves. Then it drops rapidly and shows empty after about 750km and the fuel light starts to flash at the 750km mark and then stays on after about 780km. So far I've only been game to go to 900km before filling up but I now think I can go a bit further. I'm getting just over 10km per ltr consistantly round town and slightly better on a trip.
thanks again to those who replied, Rowdy

Fellow Rodeo owners
I have a brown davis long range tank with the same capacity
but with both the small tank and the long range I have trouble
filling with the pump always cutting off
and this tends to give me the S%^$S
I can get around the problem by turning the handle upside down
does anyone else have this issue

Hey Nico. I have a single cab with aluminium tray. Every time I fill I have to hold the petrol 'gun' on it's side because it keeps cutting off. By holding it to the side it seems to solve the problem.

My Rodeo is a 2000 Single Cab pick up Diesel. I had 4WD Systems at Gilles Plains in Adelaide fit a larger tank to my Rodeo. Capacity is 125L. The first 4-500Kms of driving, the fuel gauge stays at full, then starts to go down. On the bottom side of the tank, fuel warning light comes on with about 20 litres still remaining in the tank in stop start type traffic. At continuous road speed, fuel light comes on with about 10-15 litres remaining.
My only gripe, they did not give back my original tank. Although I did ask for it back, about a week after the job was done, I never heard from them about another 'original' tank they would put aside for me.
When I went looking for a larger tank, I weighed up $ vs L as far as value for money went and this was the best at the time. Gain is equivilent to two and a half jerry cans.
