i have seen trucks that can go over 2000 miles without refilling. i dont really see the point for that. i can just make it 1 full tank between peeing or needing food/drink. i would really like to add 10 more gallons to the capacity. but that would be all of it for me.

Worse mileage carrying more weight, going an extra 150-180 miles on a tank. I'm still interested!

Yes but probably nothing that you will notice. It would be like having a passenger.

Just checked...at the gas station near my friend's house in St. Andrews, Scotland, UK it's equivalent to $9.084 USD a gallon.

$2.40 USD a litre.

Not sure what gas/gallon weighs but but water is 8lb/gallon.

10 extra gallons x 8lbs is 80 lbs. That's not bad....

gas is lighter then water. at only 6lbs a gallon. the extra weight of the 10 extra gallons is not an issue at all. good luck noticing the gas change.

A full tank of gas on a 2nd gen Taco weighs 126.6lbs. A full tank with the smaller Aussie tank weighs 202.8lbs. 76lb difference. My buddy weighs in at about 260 or 270 and I can still get 20MPG with his ass in my truck.

Driving around with an extra 150lb of gas will change your mpg a bit.

Where is the extra 150lbs coming from? The weight between a full stock tank and a full Aussie tank is a 76lb difference.

That Long Ranger is pretty interesting. Getting one shipped to the US would have to be a pricey undertaking though (unless they have a US distributor).

I would be interested in even a smaller (say 10 gal or something similar) aux tank. I am surprised that with the popularity of Tacomas with the off-roading crowd that this isn't something more readily available.

Actually, shipping from Australia is cheap; once it gets here you get screwed.

Keep in mind the tank itself will weigh a bit too, not just the extra fuel
