Hey everyone, I'm after any info on swaping a 53ltr fuel tank off a 2.6 dual cab Rodeo for the larger 65ltr tank out of the 3.2 V6 dual cab Rodeo's?....or if possible can the 75ltr single/space cab tanks be made to fit with minimum fuss??
I know I'm going to get a lot of reply's saying "...go the after market long-range tanks..." but if I can get a few extra litre's under the truck for $100-$150 bucks I'm willing to give it a go, rather than forking out $800 plus.
Many thanks....and keep left !

have you tried the wreckers have a look whereethe tanks are placed on previous models you might get lucky enough to get a larger size second hand but check for water in tanks first.
I think you could get one cheaper this way. shop around1999 NISSAN NAVARA DUALCAB

G-day Toonfish, I'm going to have a hunt around... there's plenty of space underneath as the stoneguard/tank protector goes a fair way past the end of the fuel tank.... you could almost fit a 20ltr jerry can behind the existing fuel tank.

G-day Nick...
I live in Sydney, How many k's did you get out of a full tank? I'm guessing that you've fitted a long-range tank, and I know the V6's are quite thirsty... a friend of mine in Wodonga has a 3.2 and he used 6 ltrs more than I did between Deniliquin and Hay.

Regards

I get about 12-13 Per 100k's on HWY driving
A bit thirsty but the power is good worth the comprimise
I upgraded to a 125Ltr tank

If you want the tank you can have it for $50
The only thing is getting it from Melb to Sydney

Sounds like a lot of effort and money to be able to hold just 12 litres of extra fuel. By a Jerry Can from Aussie disposals for under $20.00 and you are done. The good thing is that when you dont need the extra fuel you just take the can out and save on weight.
