It doesn't matter how tough and well maintained your wagon is, there's one thing that's guaranteed to bring it to a halt. Without fuel you won't be going anywhere. That's not a problem if you're driving around town, because you'll pass plenty of fuel stations. If you're a bit more adventurous fuel is something that needs careful planning, though. Fuel supplies are further apart in the outback and you need to have enough to reach the next one with a good reserve for safety. What do you do if the distances involved are pushing the capacity of your fuel tank? The traditional solution is to load up with jerry cans, but that eats into your load space and some people worry about safety.
There's a better solution, though. Most 4x4 vehicles come fitted with fuel tanks based on those used in standard cars. That makes them cheaper and easier to replace, but usually there's a lot of empty space left inside the bodywork of a larger vehicle. A bit of clever design can fit in a much larger tank without needing to modify the vehicle. With some models it's even possible to fit extra tanks in void spaces, increasing capacity even more. Brown Davis have developed a range of extended and auxiliary tanks to fit most popular 4WD models, and we stock the full range.
Brown Davis long-range tanks are designed to use the standard mounting points on your vehicle, so fitting one is a simple job; there's no drilling, no welding and any decent mechanic can do it in a couple of hours. The tanks are carefully designed and precisely built so they'll always line up perfectly with the original fittings. They're also made from 2mm cold-rolled steel with an aluminium coating, to ensure corrosion resistance and strength. These tanks are so tough that they don't need additional protection. Brown Davis also make the outstanding Underguard protection systems, but they're happy for these tanks to be used without an extra layer of armour. Most standard tanks are made of much thinner steel, but the specialist plate used in the Brown Davis long-range ones is in a class of its own.
The Brown Davis range includes three types of tank, all of them available for multiple models. Here are your options:
It doesn't matter what 4WD you drive; chances are we have a range of Brown Davis tanks to fit it. Sort yourself out with more fuel and better damage protection, and open up even more opportunities in the great Australian landscape.
