The Long Ranger Tank

Part of the allure of driving through the Australian outback is that the vast majority of it is unpopulated, remote wilderness. This means that having an additional fuel supply is essential if you’re planning a trip through these areas. The terrain you’re on, the weight of your load and whether you’re towing a trailer can all affect your vehicle’s fuel consumption. Not being able to accurately anticipate unplanned stops along the way and the fuel range you’ll have on low-range only terrain could leave you stranded. One of the best ways of extending that range is to fit up a Longer Ranger fuel tank.


They’re designed for people that want to leave civilization behind, but also have enough juice left in the tank to get them back again. A Long Ranger can be fitted to replace your existing fuel tank or as a large auxiliary tank, and because they’re mounted under the vehicle, you’ll have more space for your camping gear. Pat had one fitted to his Amarok, given that he regularly does big trips exploring all through the bush, often going for weeks without seeing another vehicle, it was one of the first modifications he made, giving him one less thing to worry about when he’s 1000 kilometres from the nearest servo.

  • Have fitted long ranger to GU Patrol, both main and aux. Now hold more than enough for long extended trips. Able to top up at the best price and pass locations where fuel is too expensive.
    Now looking at a water tank.

  • Pump is so noisy and now there is a blockage somewhere.
    Tip: Make sure you get someone who installs the tank with care and follows the instructions.

  • Having a Long Ranger fuel tank fitted has been a boon to my 2014 200 series Landcruiser, both whilst towing my off road caravan, and on my most recent tent trip over the Great Central Road and back down the Gibb River Road to Perth. No need at any time to carry Gerry cans, which is safer and tidier. Also allows me to refuel at cheaper places in “civilisation”.
