LONG RANGE FUEL TANKS

Taking people around Australia since 1978

Why do I need a Long Range Fuel Tank?

Brown Davis long range fuel tanks are an engineered solution to enable you to travel further with less fuel stops. They are designed to give maximum fuel capacity without affecting ground clearance, ramp over or departure angle, whilst being exceptionally strong to withstand the most rigorous of conditions. Brown Davis long range tanks allow you to travel to the most remote parts of the globe where the standard tank wouldn’t take you.

Aluminised Steel Long Range Fuel Tanks

Brown Davis Aluminised Steel long range fuel tanks are constructed from 2mm aluminium coated cold rolled steel, to ensure maximum strength and durability. This gauge of steel is sufficiently resistant to impact damage that additional tank guards are not necessary. The aluminium coating on the specific steel used by Brown Davis, offers the best of both worlds with the strength of steel and the anti corrosion properties of aluminium.

HOW IT WORKS

TANK FULL – FUEL NOT TRANSFERRING

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

TANK FULL – FUEL TRANSFERRING

WHEN BUTTON IS PRESSED THE PUMP WILL BEGIN TRANSFERRING FUEL ACROSS TO YOUR VEHICLES MAIN TANK. THE ROUND YELLOW LED LIGHT SHOWS PUMP IS RUNNING

TANK HALF FULL – FUEL TRANSFERRING

AS FUEL IS BEING TRANSFERRED ACROSS THE LED LIGHTS WILL SHOW FUEL LEVEL REMAINING IN YOUR AUXILIARY TANK. AT ANY STAGE YOU CAN PRESS THE BUTTON AND STOP THE TRANSFER OF FUEL.

TANK EMPTY – FUEL TRANSFERRING

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
