We offer 2 styles of replacement fuel tank for this vehicle.
We have a 147lt tank that replaces the rear tank #TR27. (also available to suit petrol vehicles and supplied with a carbon canister to make it the only legal tank in Australia #TR27P)
We can also supply this same design but with lower mounting brackets to suit your body lift (not spring lift) for more ground clearance, at time of order quote you body lift size of 30mm or 50mm etc. This is also a good option on coil cabs to get the tank a bit higher depending on your tray design and filler neck height, no body lift required on these vehicles as the tray design usually permit the tank to be raised. This tank will be custom built for you #TR27A with a capacity of 144lt.

Below is a list of standard accessories we have checked for compatibility with our tanks and strive to ensure compatibility with.
Alternatively if you have something a little different please check our pictures and advise the sales staff to allow extra time for fitting if you think you have something that might cause a problem on the day or if you are planning an extensive list of modifications to your truck use our pictures to make sure our tank will fit in with your plans for the best chance to get it setup the way you want.
As our fuel and water tanks are designed to make use of space under your vehicle anything else fitted could cause and issue on the day of fitting, things such as trundle draws, air tanks, tipper trays, water tanks, custom trays with low floors, batteries, extra tyre, structural chassis changes etc can all cause an unexpected issue, delays or even non fitting in a worst case scenario.
Your local ARB dealer may be able to assist with any fitment questions as they may have some prior experience with your particular model.
Another good resource is to check our photo gallery for an idea of the shape and location of our tank. Some common areas to look for possible issues with models in other countries would be: is the filler on the same side, do the chassis look the same around the tank location, If choosing a replacement tank, is the genuine tank the same capacity as with the genuine Australian spec model, Does the exhaust run in the same place, Do you have different genuine or non-genuine accessories fitted that may not be available in Australia for us to verify that may be affected with a new fuel tank.
Carbon Canister. When adding additional fuel capacity there is a legal and moral requirement to install a larger or secondary carbon canister.
Carbon canisters contain activated carbon which absorb and store fuel vapour to reliably reduce the emission of hydrocarbons and pollutants into the atmosphere.
Every petrol tank has a pressure balance pipe, which ensures that no vacuum develops as the tank is emptied, and that heating and expansion of the fuel does not create overpressure in the tank. When overpressure is relieved the fuel fumes that escape are routed through the system breather to the activated carbon where they are captured and stored.
When driving the car these hydrocarbons are burned during normal operation as they are purged via a vacuum line from the engine drawing fresh air back through the canister.
Since 2015 LongRanger is the only brand available in Australia to embark on a major initiative which will eventually see all required models shipped with a carbon canister as a standard feature.
This industry first is part of The LongRanger’s efforts for a more sustainable environment.
Cross Break Strengthening. This is a simple and effective feature to aid in the stiffening of large flat panels. This technique reduces the risk of a fuel or water tank suffering from fatigue related stress cracks when travelling on extreme corrugations.
Max Fold. Using this feature we maximise the sheet by making the base of the fuel tank from one side to the other in one continuous piece of metal. This ensures the minimum amount of heat and possible stress from welded joins.
Hydrostatic Pressure Test. At The LongRanger factory each & every fuel & water tank undergoes a pressure test while being placed under water at a maximum of 5 psi.
Shape. Good design practices are what make a fuel tank both usable and functional. Some manufactures build cheap large sheet metal boxes and bolt them under a vehicle and call it a fuel tank. At the LongRanger we take the design a little more serious. Attention to detail and decades of experience building tanks has taught us what it takes to make a great product.
Parallel Break Strengthening. Just like CBS this feature aids in the stiffening of large flat panels and reduces the risk of a fuel or water tank suffering from fatigue related stress cracks when travelling on extreme corrugations. We usually incorporate these on the very bottom of a tank.
Baffles. help add strength to the bottom of a tank, this is especially important for a 4WD when bottoming the tank out on obstacles with the pickup unit sitting on the bottom which could be damaged, if the new tank design is lower than the OEM tank this is even more important with the tank being more vulnerable to accidental obstacle contact. A well designed longrange tank should incorporate baffles for improved offroad performance as baffles also help retain the fuel around the pickup unit. With longrange tanks generally being longer or wider than the OEM tank when low on fuel it can “run away” from the pickup when driving in undulating terrain and possibly cause the engine to starve for fuel leaving you in an unpredictable situation and potentially unsafe location.
