Had ARB fit 147 litre main tank and 70 litre aux to my diesel GQ. No probs, they did it the same day as they upgraded the suspension.
Now with over 200 L on board there is not too many areas I need to carry jerry cans.

Hope this helpsBush Bappo's 4WD Club

thank you for the reply BIG BEAR i would imagine that a diesel tank and a petrol tank should be about the same to put in .Its great to hear that you can carry 200Ltrs . How much did that costs you

The main tank was about $900 and surprisingly the smaller aux was just over $1000. These prices were fitted. A bit costly but much safer than jerry cans.
The tanks are made from good grade steel and as yet have not been able to puncture them :-) lol

Petrols are different to Diesels, but its remove the Towbar, 6 bolts and the tank is out. Then replace the hoses (WELL WORTH IT), and bolt up.

Warning, the Long Range Tanks, are H E A V Y WHEN MT! Well they are when you only got 1 arm...

I had the ARB 147litre tank installed on my 94 GQ 4.2efi, with no problems at all. My quote for an aux was about the same mentioned above, exept with the petrol you need an extra sender/transfer unit as well.
Havnt installed one yet, but I probably will one day. BUT with a petrol GQ, you will probably still carry jerrycans. They love petrol.
But who cares - its a GQ!!
