Dennis, I don't know who makes the tanks for 4WD Systems which is the brand that you are talking about, but my 159 litre tank has been under my GU for approx 200000 klms and no sign of cracking yet. Methinks urban myths abound.

I stand by my comment on that other post.. A real life experience which at the time i wished was an urban myth...
All those corrugations day after day knocking off my repairs to those splits which were getting longer and longer....
Loctite Tank Repair which works great but could not stop a rampant crack....
Maybe some people just go with the flow and pump out stories,,, not me...

Been told same thing by 4wd supplier in geelong Dennis - Gee maybe I told you.

Just make sure it has some flex in one mounting point to accomodate chassis
twist before you go on any long trips.

Had the problem with the standard tank in the pajero. Small splits on the folds when full and running over corrugations.

Put in a long range tank, longranger I think, and it has done about 400,000k, now in the 2nd vehicle.
Just had to pull it out this year to fix it up since it had started to get some surface rust on the inside.

It is mounted on the stock mounts with 2 bolts spread wide at the front and 2 bolts close together at the back. That way it doesn't get any chassis flex affecting it.

Have seen some after market tanks crack at the welds, but it seems to be a poor assembly and is usually replaced under warranty.
