Finally Found an AUX fuel tank.

i finally found a company that makes an AUX fuel tank for the GC. it should fit ours. it mounts in the spare tire location. its made for the Diesel, but i think it would work for gas as well. i'll see what they say.

it holds almost 17 gallons more gas.

Do you have any info on how you actually fill the tank up. Also is there going to be a new fuel pump/sending unit with a switch or something to where you can run off one tank and then when it gets empty you flip a switch and it will start to use the fuel from the other tank.

I think it is a lot more involved then just bolting in another tank. However if we can figure it out id love to have another tank for those long trips or even when out on the trail!

Any concern with fire/explosions when mounting an aux. fuel tank in the rear? I thought that's why all the manufacturers got away from the rear mounted fuel tanks in the first place, no?

I would think you would be okay with the rear fuel cell as long as you had a good rear bumper.

Once Get Lost starts selling his rear bumper we'll be good to go!

It looks like it would be real easy to build a full skid plate to cover the spare tire area as well.

The ones you can get here in Oz made for the commander spare wheel area hold 110 litres, they put a fill point in with the current fill point and when needed you switch on the pump and it goes from the aux tank to the main tank.

I like having one fuel point, keeps the clean lines of the Commander.
