I have a Courier ute with a standard 70 litre tank with only 60 litres available and am wondering if anyone has any experience or heard of the poly diesel long range fuel tanks. I am looking at a slimline version to mounted up high directly under the tray and considered fitting some sheet metal on the underside to prevent rocks flicking up. I don't see any problems with clearance being under the tray but am interested in any comments regarding strength, weaknesses, general durabilty.
Many thanks,

They have been using them since the early 80's (1979 XD Falcon) in Australia for fuel tanks in vehicles.

Yes. I was looking for some info regarding any in field use. They don't seem to have full internal baffles or retention chamber and was wondering if this had any effect when in use off road?

I've used them as an extra but they have always been mounted in tray with no problems at all, have fitted a lot in boats & they have all lasted better than alloy or stainless steel, NSW Maritime have recently approved the use of some brands for crafts in survey with petrol & diesel, there is a company in Melb that now custom makes them to the size & shape you want & meets all Australia std both marine & automotive
