The problem is, chances are you are not dragging a or newer rig into the bush. You are more likely topping up the tanks of an older beast that does not have the same advantages of its modern equivalent. And if you are like our Tech Editor, Bryan Irons, the pursuit of ever more torque means you have dumped one fuel-guzzling power plant for one that is even bigger and catastrophically more expensive to feed. What do you do if you are looking to venture farther into nature, or maybe tow heavier loads longer distances?
The easiest and cheapest answer is to slap on a couple of Jerry Cans. However, these need constant monitoring when temperatures change, are messy to operate and are never mounted in an ideal place.
Another option is an auxiliary fuel tank. There are several manufacturers that build direct replacement large capacity tanks or auxiliary tanks. To the uninitiated, an auxiliary fuel tank is any tank that increases the fuel capacity of a vehicle. This can be done several different ways. The most common is the transfer tank that sits in the truck bed. These are most often used by tradesmen to refuel machinery, but also work well to feed the truck that is carrying it as well.

The other option is an auxiliary tank. These are secondary fuel tanks that are designed to fill empty space under the vehicle and will feed into your main tank when fuel gets low. Then you have the replacement tank, which is designed to take up as much free space as possible to give you added capacity in a single tank. We are going to concentrate on the last two here. We want to be able to add fuel capacity to a vehicle without sacrificing vital cargo space. These tanks also keep the weight of the fuel low in the chassis, aiding the centre of gravity and balance of a 4WD.
Manufacturers of these tanks are very efficient at finding more space. They remove the OEM tank and measure every nook and cranny of the underside of a given 4WD to find every bit of usable space to fit fuel. As a result, the tanks these companies create are much more intricate in their design than the OEM tanks they replace. However, these intricate designs can yield fuel capacities that are sometimes double that of the original fuel tank. The purchase of an auxiliary fuel tank should not be a decision taken lightly.
However for the right person, the large investment in cost and install time, will far outweigh the constant annoyances of carrying and filling multiple Jerry Cans. Ask yourself this; do you travel away from services for several days at a time?
Do you enjoy long overland expeditions into vast uninhabited areas? Then an auxiliary fuel tank might be a good option. If most of your trail time comprises of short day trips in and around your local area, then maybe not. Travelling in the vastness of the Australian Outback, the additional 90L I got with an auxiliary tank in the Landcruiser I was travelling in, made a massive difference in the stress level of exploring new terrain.
Once any of these issues arise, you start to look at the fuel gauge with much sharper eyes than you did at the beginning of your trip. It is extremely calming to know that you have more than enough fuel to get you through to the next fuel stop, no matter what happens. Depending on your skill level at swinging wrenches, a fuel tank install can be relatively simple.
Simple installs will require draining the fuel system, unbolting the old tank, dissecting the in-tank pump and sender unit and reinstall. More complicated installs will require some body modifications, wiring and plumbing of secondary pumps and dash displays for dual tank systems.You can edit the text in this area, and change where the contact form on the right submits to, by entering edit mode using the modes on the bottom right.

The FJ Cruiser has added a second fuel tank with an litre capacity, increasing the overall fuel reserve from 72 to litres. This compares with litres for the Prado mid-size soft-roader on which the FJ Cruiser is based.
Toyota said the second fuel sub-tank boosted the theoretical driving range of the FJ Cruiser to km in the city and more than km for highway driving.
Power for the FJ Cruiser continues to come from a kW 4. The system controls engine output and brake pressure to maintain a low vehicle speed both up and down hill, allowing the driver to focus on steering.
By minimising situations such as wheel-spin and tyre lock-up, the system increases the stability of the vehicle in uncertain off-road conditions. Toyota said that the CRAWL system should reduce the likelihood of damage to the vehicle by controlling speed over difficult terrain.
The driver can choose one of five speeds via a speed-selector dial in the overhead console and the system can only be engaged under certain conditions.

Marcos Seijas on November 13, at am.I have grown very tired of the small fuel tank in the Toyota FJ Cruiser. Man-A-Fre offers a solution to this problem with there FJ auxiliary fuel tank. The fuel tank is constructed of aluminum and bolts in right in using existing bolt holes.
The installation requires the replacement of the fuel filler stem with a modified version from Man-A-Fre. The installation also includes a sender and fuel gauge. An electric pump is used for the transfer of the fuel from the auxiliary tank to the primary tank. For my install I am using an existing switch in my switch panel to control the pump. The install is not for the faint of heart as you will be working with the fuel lines on the FJ. I hope to be able to resolve this issue with the help of Man-A-Fre.
What size is this additional fuel tank? I know you can still carry the gas cans and now you have this addition and I do appreciate all of your information on your site. I was just throwing my two cents out there. I have owned a FJ40 for some time, my wife purchased a FJ Cruiser about 2 years ago and she just bought me one like hers to shut me up about complaining on my back hurting all the time lol.
I can send you some pictures later on if you are interested in seeing how great a FJC can look as a cop vehicle. Some ideas are on board air, roof light bar with off road lights anywhere I can fit them, second battery system if neededbumpers, wheels, snorkel, hi-lift jack, spare tire gas can mount….
Keep up the good work! I still think my 14 gallon auxillery aluminum fuel tank is equal to the Man-A-Fre tank. The cost is remarkably lower and the functionality is the same. My tank sits higher in the area and also has a rock guard. Please forgive me for not replying sooner. It fits the back of the roof rack perfectly. YOu have to stop and sipohn fuel from it so I guess that is a negative.
This auxiliary fuel tank is a great modification. Well done! Having almost 40 gallons of gas is priceless. Installing the fuel gauge was tougher than mounting the tank.
