No they don't...every model that I checked out sat below the 3rd seat well. They all pumped from the auxillary back into the main tank too.

Another thing to consider is that the LRA tank does NOT need any holes to be drilled into the floorpan or rear seat well.
Holes DO need to be drilled for the longranger tank....

If you're looking for a long range tank, the LRA tank from Lillydale, Vic, or through ARB outlets, is a surperior product, mine is finally being installed next week, at the LRA factory.

This will be my third LRA tank having previously had them in a Cherokee (110Lt replacement) and a Grand Cherokee (110Lt auxliary)

I have never had any problems with them, only with dirty fuel, clogging up the float mechanism, which LRA replaced free of charge anyway.

These are well constructed tanks, one of my vehicles got stuck in sand and the fully loaded vehicle was resting on the tank, with no consequences or leaks.

The beauty of their tanks is the dual filler that replaces your existing filler and gives you an option of filling your main (original) tank only or filling the rear (auxliary) tank or both and come with a locking cap.

The system has an electric transfer pump activated by an LED fuel guage module on the dash, simply press the pump button when the vehicle low fuel warning light comes on (or before) It transfers the fuel to you main tank, of course you need to switch it off, so you need to keep an eye on it and not run the pump dry

Yes as others have stated these are a 104Lt auxliary tank and can be fitted to any NW Pajero that does not have the rear aircon ducts.
Vehicles with aircon ducts can purchase a smaller tank. They sit below the third row seat well and for models without aircon have an upswept section on the drivers side that fits in between the seat well and the chassis giving roughly an extra 30 litres over the aircon model, see photos. (not my vehicle, factory supplied photos)

Have ordered my LRA tank, and booked in for fitting on the Thursday before Easter at TJM.
81 litre Aux tank is as big as you can go with LRA in a Pajero without rear air, and TJM are the national distributors for them. ARB do Long Ranger which have smaller capacity.

Hi,
Thinking about fitting an Aux Tank as well and was wondering about the filling part of it. Would you happen to have some pics of this dual filler.
I thought you would always have to go to a separate filling point for the Aux Tank.
Where would these points be for the other brands though? I do not like the idea of having holes drilled through the floorpan or rear seat well .
Is there a considderable price difference between those different brands?

This maybe a stupid question, however, from looking at the photos i guess installing towbar before aux tank would be best due to tight space

Probably recommended, yes.....
As you are in SA, my Paj has a towbar from Allin Towbars (Richmond Road) and the LRA tank bolted up perfectly. The tank shares the mounting points with the towbar at the back of the chassis rails.
Cheers, Dan.

Do a search and read some. You will find the LRA tank the best one, early brown Davis ones had pick up issues and the long ranger doesn't mount anywhere near as well as the LRA tank. The LRA tank has brackets that mount it to the chassis rails without any drilling. The long ranger requires you to drill through the seat well floor pan. So when you tank bottoms out (as they will) the LRA takes the blow through to the rails while the Long Ranger takes the blow to the seat pan.

The tanks does hang down a bit but also protects the rear A/C and the plastic rear bumper. One of the best mods I did. Approx $1100-1200 for the LRA tank plus fitting.

Seems like a lot of money for only 58 ltrs. Three jerry cans on the roof rack (inc the price of the roof rack) would be cheaper overall

Yes, but then add to that 30kg worth of roof rack system and you have literally reached the max roof loading of 100kg for the Pajero. No room for anything else up there....
Best to keep the weight of the fuel nice and low (Aux tank) for stability reasons too.
Yes, these tanks are not cheap but if you are keeping the car for any length of time after installation the cost is well worth it.
The tank is up very high on the list on the favourite mods that I have done to my Paj!
Dan.
