Dual auxiliary fuel tanks

I am looking into running dual auxiliary tanks under the seat boxes. In the image #1 looks to be the under seat tank found on my UK diesels. #5 (ESR4132) looks like it could fit under both passenger and driver side seats. Does anyone know if it these would fit under our NAS chassis? Would it hang lower than the slider?

Obviously seat boxes would be modified and also the battery would have to be moved.

They do hang down. If you got that diesel engine I pointed you to it would give you pretty impressive range.

Oliver Whiting on this forum offered a skid plate for the saddle tanks as do others. Safari Equip makes an auxiliary tank of their own design to go there too, I think. Though, they seem pretty flakey so you may never get it.

I wouldn't worry about them scraping though, you won't hear it over the sooothing easy listening sounds of your bitchin' new in-dash entertainment system.

Thats what im thinking! I don't know about that one you sent me. I got one in Canada im going to get for the same price for radiator - back. Plus new timing belt. I want loooong range. The price of those ESR4132 in the UK are cheap. I can get two shipped here for around $500. And they hold more than others i've seen.

Now I just need to retrofit another 8-tack in the Defender and stock pile tapes for those long hauls.

Installed the ROW tank under the passenger's seat (I cut out the seat box)- biggest question was where to put the filler cap. I pump the gas from the aux. to the main tank with a universal pump. I have a gas guage and sender on the auxillary tank and I bought my skid plate from Justin at Lucky 8 and am also running SG sliders in case of a side impact. I think I posted some pics awhile back in this section.

I'd like to know where you would put the battery. Just as little under the hood room with a tdi in there.
