Larger Gas Tank !!!!!!!

Will someone PLEASE manufacture a larger gas tank for the Samurai....a 12 or 13 gallon would do the trick without the weight...

Re: Larger Gas Tank !!!!!!!

That's only a couple of gallons. Easier to add a Jerry can. Someone was making them in So. Cal. I have some pics of one both in and out of the truck. I think it was either 15 or 17 gals. I dno't think they are mae anymore.

Go custom?

Re: Larger Gas Tank !!!!!!!

I have a 9 gal one I'll sell ya! (It started out as a 10 gal one...) Once Again I have done the undoable,
Dented a stock gas tank skid plate badly enough that it also dented the tank.... Oh well here goes the 1/4" skid
as the next part to make.

Denting the Gas tank! Man, I've slammed that puppy and at most I got was scratches. You must be frickin' extreme! Or have no care for life, limb or rig. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

So, if we come to a point on the trail where you say, "Go ahead Tim, the most you'll do is scrape a little", I'll consider the source. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Denting the gas tank, what's wrong with you man. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Larger Gas Tank !!!!!!!

Hey what can I say I was in 1st low! (I used to compete in motorcycle trials, you know the stuff where guys climb
dumb insane things?) I enjoy myself... I tend to take rather unconventional lines and sometimes it bites me in the
gas tank!

I hope the new tank will be compatible with fuel injection motors.

In Australia a company called out of town makes an great 18.7 gallon (70ltr) tanks that is extremely strong and a great fit. Sells for $669.00 Australian dollars which would be about $400 US.
