DODGE RAM- 2500 & 3500

AUXILIARY LONG RANGE FUEL TANKS

Brown Davis has worked closely with some of Australia’s best vehicle modifiers to design a long range fuel tank that turns the Dodge Ram into a mile eating machine. 

The small amount of room around the vehicles standard fuel tank meant designing a larger replacement fuel tank would not give us the extra capacity we wanted. The only solution left was using the room behind the rear diff where the spare wheel is located. With the large tubs and amount of customers opting for aftermarket trays with spare wheels mounted to rear made this a perfect solution.

This system is designed as a transfer system. At the flick of a switch, fuel will be pumped from your Brown Davis auxiliary tank into your vehicles standard tank, which then feeds the engine. An LED gauge is supplied to show driver the fuel level of the auxiliary fuel tank at all times. When the auxiliary tank becomes empty an automatic alarm will sound to tell driver to switch the transfer pump off. This prevents pump from continuously running which can course pump failure. All parts and hardware for install are supplied

Fuel pumps burning out is now a thing of the past. Brown Davis has developed a new auxiliary fuel tank gauge, switch and buzzer unit to be supplied with most Brown Davis auxiliary transfer fuel tanks. The small unit is no bigger then a 10 cent coin and can be mounted nicely in vehicles dashes.

THE LED GAUGE WILL SHOW TANK LEVEL AT ALL TIMES EVEN IF PUMP IS NOT RUNNING.

WHEN TANK IS COMPLETELY EMPTY A BUZZER WILL SOUND AS A REMINDED TO TURN THE PUMP OFF. LEAVING FUEL PUMPS ON FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME CAN BURN THEM OUT
