Re: extra tank?
I was planning about doing some tripping in my ute, and contemplated the same thing. This is what I thought of doing:
The tank is under the floor in the tray/rear of the van, same as the ute (behind the passenger seat).
I thought about getting a spare ute/pvan tank and associated brackets, and getting that set up on the opposite side of the tranny hump. Then get a custom made balance pipe between the two (by a professional competent at welding fuel tanks). Then feed both tanks to the one fuel line using a y piece, so you are constantly using fuel out of both tanks. You could then use the original fuel guage and filling point.
That would give you 24 gallons of fuel....
I'd prefer to keep the original spare mounting point underneath. Beats having a wheel in the back!
