    Hello everybody and thanks for your help. I have a 2009 Tacoma Dbl Cab 6 speed manual. I'm having a lot of trouble finding a larger gas tank to install. Basically what I'm looking for is what The Long Ranger has developed for the Toyota Hilux the TR63/TR63A, is there anybody in Canada or the USA can can make this or has something similar?

    There should be some place to make custom tanks... Otherwise, Jerry Cans? 300-400 mile range not enough? A second full tank adds a lot of weight and will hurt mileage. But, if there are no secure fuel sources, then that's the way to go!

    I would love to find an additional tank to add to the factory one. I have been looking for one that is mounted under the truck just like the factory, and it ties into the factory tank. I don't want a second fill spout nor do I want a second fuel pump. I know a tank can be made that just fills and empties in and out of the main/factory tank. Those silly transfer cases are a pain, especally with a cap on the truck, and it's a pain to then fill the factory tank.

    I deffinatly dont worry about the extra weight because is really is nothing. Figure a gallon of water weighs just under 8 lbs, and gas is less then water. A 50 gallon tank filled with gas will weigh less then 400 lbs...hell people put more weight then that on their trucks between armored front and rear bumpers, skid plats, sliders, caps, or truck boxes. And the loss in miles per gallon....hell, that's soo small, who cares. lol

    I just want it so I can go longer between fill ups and ride out the times the gas companies want to rape us with jacked up prices.
