Haven't had mine long, but no issues so far. Still getting used to not having an accurate DTE displayed on the trip computer. Feels like I'm back in 1980 having to reset my trip meter and work out how far I've got left

I notice in the recent issue of RV Daily (034) that they have the ARB tank mentioned as follows:

If you like to go the distance in you Mitsubishi Pajero, you no longer have to worry about running out of fuel thanks to ARBís new long-range Frontier fuel tank. The Frontier offers a 58 percent increase in fuel capacity, so you will now be able to get 100 litres out of a tank Ė great news for remote travellers! The tanks are a seamless, one-piece tank shaped to fit the underbody of your vehicle without affecting ground clearance, and made from Crosslink Polymer, a durable, flexible and lightweight material that will withstand the harshest off-road conditions.

I'd like to know who taught them maths. An extra 40L isn't a 58% increase and the capacity is 128L, not 100.

Perhaps they mean Pajero Sport?

Quite possible, I hadn't thought of that but it does just say Pajero.

Howdy Y'all

I've been the proud new owner of a 2012 NW platinum for two days now.
But of an off topic question.

From reading through here I gather the standard tank runs on the drivers side fwd to after.
Looks as though I've got a tank just in front of the rear bar, doesn't look aftermarket. Would anyone know if this is standard fitment?
With two tanks are they joined or would there likely be a switch I haven't found yet to switch between tanks?
Cheers

No 2007+ Pajero’s came with 2 tanks as standard. All aftermarket tanks just pump into the main tank, switch is usually on the dash somewhere possibly with a little fuel gauge.

Are you sure itís not just the tub under the third row/boot area? (Would normally house the third row seats when theyíre folded away)
The paj does not have a factory aux tank option therefore if there is one it would definitely be aftermarket.

Maybe the bulge you are looking at is the rear Air Conditioner? That sits behind the rear R wheel and of course forward of the rear bumper bar.

Cheers for that, feeling pretty stupid now, it probably is the bulge that houses the seats

I have had mine for over 18 months now witbout any problems. This includes a trip down the QAA line and the Hay River track. Looking forward to the extra distance I get when I do my Central Australia trip this year.
