Fuel Filler Extension

The Series Land Rovers had fuel filler extension that made it easier to fill the tank from a jerry can. My RR/D90 hybrid doesn't have one, and the extension from my IIA is too big to fit into the D90 filler. Do the Defenders for the North American market have fuel filler extensions?

No, they dont. Janey has that set up, are you talking about a recessed side filler or one of the ones that was on the beltline by the passenger door?

It's recessed in the side. Two-pronged locking cap.

all the early defenders have them with the screen in the bottom.

They really come in handy when you are adding fuel from a jerry can, but a total pita @ the gas station. the screen makes diesel foam up immediatey so you have to fill very slowly.

My Ex-Mod 110 has the extension with screen. I just remove it when refueling so no foaming problems. I have a spare fuel tank out of an Ex-Mod 90 that also has the extension.

I would be interested in buying one, if someone had a spare lying around. If I had measurements and a photo, I might be able to make one out of a scrap of stainless exhaust pipe.

On my IIA the cap is chained to the extension, and the extension is chained to the bottom of the filler pipe. I made the chain long enough to allow the extension to be removed for filling at the pump.

Get a super siphon instead. I got one and used it for the first time the other day, and was simply amazed out how effective it was, and how quickly it transferred the fuel. took about 3 seconds to get it started, and then you can walk away from it. 3-4 minutes later, the scepter was empty.

I have a can holder on my rear door, which is the perfect place to transfer fuel from.

My 1985 Range Rover (grey market car) had a flip up gas cap and extension.
