Where are you? If in NSW you are supposed to have an engineers certificate for the fitting of a long range tank to remain legal. I don't think anyone gets one and I'm not anyone gets knocked back for it but that is the way it is here in NSW.


I've had a long range fuel tank engineered before!

On my previous Hilux, I had several things to tick off that got engineered. Talking 15 years ago and a ye-olde LN106 2.8 litre diesel:

- Aftermarket turbo and intercooler
- Suspension lift
- Body lift
- Wider, taller wheels & wider track
- Sunroof
- Big exhaust system
- Replacement front seats (from a Honda Accord!)

and

- Long range fuel tank :lol:

Everything passed! :D

The tjm battery tray is a lot better built and designed then the piranha one, and I found a spot up under the guard out of the way for the circuit protection, I also get 600klm befor the fuel gauge even moves off full with the long range tank loving the little Isuzu so far I was worried coming from a landcruiser but happy I made the switch.

If you get 600km before the gauge moves off full, then the setup of the gauge, ie having a gauge to indicate fuel usage, is completely out of whack in your tank.
Like the OE tank there is a while of use before the gauge moves down, but having 600km before anything indicates leaves you playing catch up with the rest.
Alternatively, with the available fuel on board and a little experience you can probably judge better than the system can.

Looks like no attempt to calibrate the gauge to the tank was made at any time during fitment.

Your right but once the gauge starts to move its just like a normal tank when it says empty its empty I just get a lot further then a standard tank before it move off full not an issue really is it.

Picked up the genuine mags cheap off gum tree they look a lot better then the standard steel rims, I've been offered a 2" RAw suspension kit on the cheap but don't know a lot about raw anyone els use it??
Also if any one chasing 4 genuine steel Mags with brand new tyres on them let me know.

Mounted uhf today copied the location from a few threads I've read but mounted it differently By drilling holes on consol to line up with mounting holes in unit itself, I wrapped the unit in denso tape to prevent any movement come up well I thought. Also found u don't have to remove the entire centre consol the gear stick surround just unclips bringing everything u need to mount the uhf.

I mounted some circuit protection there for my auxiliary battery it just made it a lot easier to mount them with it off if u zoom in you can see them above washer bottle, simple to get to when it's all together.
