You need to be very careful adding weight to the rear of a caravan. In fact the major caravan repair place in Melbourne won't do it. That applies to tool boxes, bike carriers or even a second spare.

I thought it was illegal to carry fuel cans on the rear of any vehicle or caravan?

Already knew that.
Don't know who you refer to as major caravan repair place, but they have their eyes closed if they do not look at jobs on a case by case basis.
New caravan sales centers will often add bits to the back of caravans which they would consider carefully before hand.
Try to watch what I am doing and look at the ramifications, so far OK.
By the way, it is alright to carry diesel fuel in the correct container on the back of a caravan.
There are rules for how much, what container and what hazardous liquid.

Just wondering if anyone has revisited the replacement fuel tank recently?

I'm keener on the metal tank (Brown Davis 112L) over the ARB Frontier (100L) for the small additional fuel for a similar price ($1,000).

I was running a much more economical car and refuelling every 2 weeks - now down to a week and a bit....350-400 km per week.

I would be interested to know what happens to the fuel gauge and distance prediction on the dash if tank capacity is changed.
Could the software changed to allow for the extra fuel capacity?
It would seem to be simple to change the software algorithm to allow for the change if the tank level sensor and the tank has the same characteristics as the original.
Mitz wouldn't allow it though would they.

Tha fuel guage and distance to empty is inaccurate until there is 70 litres left in the tank and then it's fairly right.
