Neat approach but I would think not cheap.

If someone want's to do the research on availability of that tank from South Africa I would be interested in a group purchase for the right price.

It has been 3 yrs since I have had any email contact with the owner of that fuel tank.
I fired off an email today asking him if he can remember the cost as I figured somebody would ask.

We can only hope he still has the same email address.

That's great thanks, if nothing else it's a neat design to copy. Interestingly I can't see a breather in the photo which makes me wonder how the air escapes when filling.

Aux tank Filler pipe goes through the body work to join up with the filler pipe to main tank.

That is all the information that I have on the tank.

Alternatively, get your hands on a suitable rectangular boat fuel tank, plonk in where the back seat is, bolt it down, plumb it gravity fed into the main tank directly below it via the access plate. Run the filler somewhere inside the cab out of the way, tank breather can be run to the outside via grommet. Cut the foam back seat underside to fit the tank nicely so it all looks factory and will keep the seat in place. That's just a basic setup, it's easy to go further with it. (Pun not intended haha)

Good way to nearly double fuel capacity, use up wasted space, keep weight further central however not legal but that's only if you care! Hard to mod a car without being illegal these days in Australia anyway. If the filler is kept relatively hidden then nobody would be none the wiser, probably better in a crash than something around the wheel well too.

check out these -- you could probably find one to fit behind the back seat

That in floor tank is brilliant! I'd be interested in getting one too if we can get a group buy going.

I'd like one of the poly ones but we're not allowed jerry cans inside the car for our upcoming outback trip (I just realised, I havent posted this up, must do it now)

I'm still waiting to hear back from the owner, it's been 3 days now since i sent off the email to the owner, hopefully he is only on Christmas break and will get back to me so I can pass along the info.
