Your OE system will still think it has the same size tank and will work out all it's calcs on that. If you use it as you have previously with the same km and litres/100 in mind you should get a fairly workable idea of what to expect. Usually less in relative terms because it is heavier etc.Then knowing your usage you will know how much fuel you still have and decide your fuel range.
It may be possible for Mitsubishi to recalibrate the tank size in the trip computer section but don't hold your breath.

If you buy a Scangauge it will work out and display many things which the engine systems control and scans in the background.
The Scangauge also has a comprehensive setup for different engine sizes and TANK VOLUMES and will then act as an additional on dash display so you can keep track of such things. Has trip computer etc etc etc.
The Scangauge will also enable you to see engine fault codes and reset fault codes and engine check lights if and when they appear. This allows some diagnosis so you can work out what is wrong without going to an expensive repair shop when it might be just a simple fault.

Hi John. Does your fuel gage work accurately? This interests me as I believe my 2006 PA Challenger has much in common with the Triton. Are you prepared to name the supplier of the long range tank? And what is it's capacity.
It is important to always maintain a sense of proportion

Your trip display will not be accurate, the trip display works of a set calculated map, this map can not be adjusted as it thinks it still has a small tank.
