confused BA Ute Fuel Tank

Getting a new BA XR8 ute and i travel a lot often at nights though little country towns and it's hard to get fuel. Does anyone know anything about getting a bigger fuel tank, fitting another one, or any other option i could head for (other than jerry cans)

On the XG - XH utes the Outback model had a second tank under the floor of the tray. If the current model has room you could position another tank in a similiar fashion. You would probably have to reroute the exhaust.

80 litre tank in the utes, should get you a fair way across victoria, but then again you might be having some fun...

I don't know how true that is. I had gauge on 'E' and DTE on 11km and it took 70 litres.

I had 20k left in the tank , and it only took 68 litres , and thats running the bowser until it kept shutting out at every try to fir more in.

I'm a bit scepticle about this 80 litre tank myself ( I put it in the same class as my production line pictures )

confused

on my old AU i have managed to get 87lt's in, that was filling until it ran out the top. other times had DTE on 7km and put 84lt's in.. the pipe must hold a bit, but not too sure how good the DTE is
