We have seen a picture of the underside of a LHD vehicle from France and it looks the same as our Australian RHD vehicle so other than being LH drive, the European models appear to all be the same underneath which is great if you want to fit our tank.
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.
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.
Leading Edge Deflection Angle. Incorporating a leading edge deflection angle on the front lower section of the fuel tank allows road debris to be easily deflected. This means the tank is marginally smaller in capacity, but in those tricky situations going over mounds of dirt and rocks you are less likely to get hung up than on a tank which hangs to low with a square leading edge.
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.
The Long Ranger Fuel Hose.
The LongRanger fuel delivery hose is manufactured to SAE standards. Our fuel hose can be used in applications such as: Automotive fuel lines, emission control hose and commercial usage. Suitable for both diesel, leaded and unleaded fuels. Read More
Pac-Man. You guessed it, we have pacmen inside our tanks working away to help strengthen the high stress areas. While your happily driving along those rough corrugated outback dirt roads listening to your favourite country music in the air-conditioned comfort of your new 4WD, these little guys are busy working away holding things together while the underside of your vehicle is coping a pounding.
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.
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 Long Ranger’s efforts for a more sustainable environment.
