I have a plastic taste in the water

Our tanks are made from stainless steel and we use food grade pvc hose so there should not be any issues.
If you regularly fill from a garden hose it is a good idea to let it run for a while before filling the tank as the water lying in the hose can be tainted and transferred to the water tank every time you fill up!

How do I fill the water tank

Most of our water tanks come with an under bonnet filler so we do not drill any holes in your new car.
Although we don’t recommend doing it at full town water pressure a good tip that can also be set up, with the correct fittings on our tap you can use your standard hose to back fill the water tank, you know its full when it comes gushing out the breather 😉

Water leaks after filling up

Most of our water tanks have an under bonnet fill, and a breather to allow the water to come out when you turn the tap on.  We do try to have the breather up as high as possible during the installation but sometimes when you fill up the water level can be higher than the top of the tank and breather, so it is not unusual to have a small amount of water come out the breather in these situation or when the tank if full and you go up or down a very steep hill.
As the breather is in the very top of the tank the amount that can come out would only usually be what is in the filler hose.

Have you got a unique setup?


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.

 

While our tanks have been primarily designed to fit Australian models prior to early 2000, Since then car manufacturers have been getting smarter and making their cars on global platforms so they generally fit vehicles of the same model in other countries.
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.

 

ledaLeading 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-foldMax 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.

 


hptHydrostatic 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.

 


shapeShape. 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.

 


pbsParallel 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.

 


bafflesBaffles. 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.
