TOYOTA HILUX (2015-PRESENT)

150 LITRE REPLACEMENT LONG RANGE FUEL TANK

The unbreakable Toyota Hilux has been taking Australian’s around our huge country for decades. The difference now compared to the old days is how you carry the extra fuel required for your long distance trip. Dirty jerry’s is a thing of the past!

In only 2 hours your nearest Brown Davis dealer can remove your standard 80lt fuel tank and replace it with a whopping 150lt Brown Davis long range fuel tank. This almost doubles the vehicles driving range while still remaining at the same height as the standard tank. 

The Toyota Hilux replacement tank utilizes factory components making for an easy install with no modifications required. The Toyota Hilux replacement tank has no affect on your spare wheel, allowing it to retain its factory location under the vehicle.

Building a Brown Davis Tank

Since the beginning, Brown Davis has taken pride in the construction of our tanks, our Toyota Hilux (2015 – PRESENT) tank is no exception. Our tanks are made with quality and care, from the materials we use to the stringent pressure testing, they are prepared for the harshest conditions.

Laser Cut Aluminized Steel

Manufacturing our steel tanks starts with laser cut aluminized steel. With this material, your tank will have the strength and durability of steel, and the anti-corrosive properties of aluminum to make sure their is no rust.

Folded Before Welded

Before welding the tank, we use specialized machinery to fold the laser cut aluminized steel to decrease the amount of time and labor put into welding. Folded parts also have superior strength to welded parts.

High Quality Welding Every Time

Next, our experienced welders add the brackets, swirl pot and baffles to the tank and then weld it all off.  We use jigs to locate the brackets for each individual tank so installation is as consistent and easy as possible for every vehicle.

Pressure Testing

Lastly, we take it through an air pressure test. This involves a soap test, submersion test and a pressure gauge. These techniques help us identify any rare leaks and where they’re coming from. If air isn’t coming out, fuel definitely isn’t.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes.. All Brown Davis Fuel Tanks come with everything required to be fitted to your vehicle. This includes auxiliary (secondary) Fuel Tanks which come with electric fuel pump, hoses, wiring and fuel gauge.

After the installation of any Long Range Fuel Tank the vehicles fuel gauge (needle fuel gauge) will change slightly. This will be different in each vehicle depending on the tank shape. Some tanks will remain on full for a few hundred kilometres due to the extra height in the new tank. In most of the more popular tanks, we supply a special float arm to go with our tank, this gives a more accurate reading for the gauge. What we do make sure of is that the vehicles low fuel light and empty point is accurate on all tanks. This is of course the point on the gauge you want to make is correct.
