The 4WD Systems range of tanks has been developed over many years of designing, manufacturing and refining. Our unique and often odd shaped designs optimise the under-vehicle space, ensuring maximum useable capacity to gain driving range and the best value ($ per litre capacity).The use of a long range replacement or auxiliary tank will dramatically improve the driving range of a vehicle from 50 to 200% depending on the tank and model of vehicle.

This increased range and preferred weight distribution provides the necessary safety margin when travelling in remote areas as well as the convenience and safety of not carrying jerry cans and the consequent instability of heavy, high loads.

The increased fuel capacity and distance between fuel stops allows fuel to be purchased at better rates (saving as much as 40¢ per litre in some outback areas).

Can custom size to suit some tanks to suit Body Lifts POA

With increased fuel capacity you have more time to relax and explore, even with increased fuel consumption caused by variations in track conditions. This means you don't have to cut short your excursions or base an entire trip and timetable around fuel stops and availability.

This may seem unimportant until you find that you are unable to see all the interesting sites, or venture along a creek bed or rough track simply because of fuel constraints - getting too close to empty.

I had decided to buy a Long Range fuel tank but had heard stories of large capacity tanks cracking and other people who had electrical problems with smaller auxillary tanks, so to be honest I was a bit confused and 100% sure which way to go - 160Li tank or 70Li auxillary. I need not have worried.

All this was over years ago and the tank has been terrific and trouble free despite being pounded along some bloody awful roads with awesome corrugations and tracks needing very careful low range work to negotiate water crossings, large rocks and just about everything else you would expect to encounter in the outback.

These 'roads' include the Meerenie Loop Road, Ernest Giles Road, Gibb river Road, Bungle Bungles access road, many dirt roads in Kakadu National Park, the Top End and central Australia. In short it is tough tank!!!

The tank has been and continues to be and essential item fitted to the TD Patrol as it provides the means to undertake many shorter trips without having to re-fuel.
I had considered carrying extra fuel in a 20Li jerry cans but decided on safety grounds against this.

I have found the 4WD Systems tank very practical and extremely handy as I can sometimes take advantage of filling up in some larger towns on trips wheer fuel is much cheaper or making back to Darwin before re-fueling.

I have the 137 litre tank and very happy with it. Did have to remove muffler and replace with a resonator ( 3 inch system) but happier with it like that. The tank served me well as it made up the cape and back with no hassles ( ie cracks or clearance) …...... The guys from 4wd systems are extremely helpful and bent over backwards to get me the tank in time. Also have the Lokka from them and I can't stop raving about it. You won't be disappointed.
