We are planning a central desert trip in May/June and would like to install an additional fuel tank in our 2002 Jackeroo. We have been told it can't be done. Any suggestions?

Hi Ali,

I have a 99 Jackaroo which is basically the same vehicle as 2002 & I have fitted an additional fuel tank of 60 litres making 145 litres all up. I was not prepared to carry fuel in the vehicle for long trips.

Mine is a Long Ranger Tank which are sold through ARB outlets - mine was purchased from the manufacturer in Newcastle & I have been very happy & have not come across any problems at all. It is fitted under the rear floor on the drivers side. It does not lessen ground clearance.

I received an ARB catalogue today & the tanks fit all models from 98. Cost is $1,353 fitted - so not cheap but is so much safer than the alternative,

Regards
Willy

I also looked at buying a 2000 3.0TD Jack before I got my surf and there was one in a yard with a LR Tank it was fitted to the rear right but it did look as though it may have limited clearance a small amount. (it was pretty big). So it can be done.

My 99TD had a long range tank (140L) when I got it.
LRA (Long Range Automotive???) made it, they r based in Melbourne I think.

Hi ali,

Bi-tron has helped many vehicle owners get at least 20% extra distance out of a tank of fuel. Check out my Bi-tron "Press Release".

Carry the fuel in new metal jerries inside the vehicle. It is as safe as the fuel tank outside. At around $40 each you carry as much or as little as you need.

I have two plastic fuel containers bought October 03, They work well but I have noticed a sort of a musty fuel smell inside my truck ever since I got them. All my steel jerries have new seals so I put it down to miniscule vapour escaping from the plastic jerries. They are empty at the moment and there must be some build up of gases on hot days. I am going to replace them with steel jerries and will carry the plastic ones in the trailer when we do mega long hauls. My old truck is a bit thirsty, you know :-)

Cheers and Beam me up as well,

Willem

Hi Ali
Is the vehicle petrol or Diesel. If diesel I would be happy carrying fuel inside or if no space on roofrack, but putting the fuel in the main tank jerrycan by Jarry can as soon as you have the space. Petrol I don't like inside
