I'd like a long range fuel tank to fit my 2003 dual cab diesel hilux. I would appreciate any opinions on best value/reliability etc.
Thanks Stuart.

G'day Stuart

We have a Longranger tank (115 litre) fitted to a 2000 Hilux. It was fitted in 2004 and we haven't had any problems at all. The increase in range when towing is a huge advantage.

One thing to note - the fuel guage does not start operating until the tank level gets to 66 litres (the capacity of the original tank). After discussion with the folks who fitted the tank, and after they had discussion with Longranger, we were told that this is the way it is

Cheers
John

G'day porl

Not for the Longranger on the 2000 TD Hilux dual cab. Fits almost directly behind/under the fuel filler pipe. Can't spk for other models/years.

One thing to think about (which I didn't) - we have a dual battery system, with the second battery in the back because it wouldn't fit anywhere in the engine bay. We finished up with the bigger fuel tank and the second battery on the same side. Doesn't really seem to affect anything but ideally for weight distribution it would be better to have the battery on one side and fuel tank on the other.

Cheers
John

Looked at this a while back for my petrol Hilux. The long range tanks available then replaced my current 77 litre tank but only added a maximum of 50 litres i.e. 127 litres in total.

The maths of 3 jerries against around $1,000 for the long range tank decided the issue. If you're sensible, carrying a few jerries is not a risk at all. For a diesel vehicle it is an even better solution IMHO.
