I have just removed the LPG system from my GQ patrol and I am wanting to refit the original fuel tank. I have an auxillary tank already fitted under the drivers side and I want to keep this. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to have both tanks fitted so that I only require one filler. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

hi dino would you like to use your tank under the drivers side as a secondary tank or use them both as one where they both empty together

I have similar system in my GQ RB 30. Switch on console changes tanks, provides fuel gauge info, and transfers fuel to main tank via separate filter. Filler is Y piece. Hose gauge to aux tank does mean refilling is slower - clicks off if you try to be too clever.
Hope that helps

Dino,
I am just going through the same exercise.
Mine is an EFI with the submerged fuel pumps,I am going to leave the existing sub tank and pump and fit back the original with its own pump.
then use a 6 port soleniod to connect up the two tanks to the fuel and return lines.
As for the fill point ,brown davis has two neck fillers that fit in the original space, but they are $220 each (to much).
I will investigate the ARB offering but most likely will make my own fromcar wreck parts.
I look forward to other suggestions on this site. Regards

hi dino,
Brown Davis are good people to talk to if you have any questions (and they're quite willing to talk). I just recently had them replace my "Y" filler with one of their twin fills. I had 2 issues with my "Y" fill, couldn't fit a hi-flow bowser nossel(nozzel?) into the aux tank (my GQ's diesel), but more importantly, fuel will transfer between tanks when going thru steep inclines (as we saw very noticably on our trip to Cooper Creek via Broken Hill) mucking up calculations on how much you actually have on board.
