Hi, anyone on the forum have a 10 Gallon Aero Auxiliary Gas Tank they are not using and would like to sell. I need to extend the driving range of my D-90. Thanks
Thank you for the link. This is a well designed modern version of an old Series II and III fuel tank. But it looks like it is only available in the UK. I guess I could have someone from the UK buy it, then ship to me... To install it I would have to relocate the radio amplifier and an ECU located in the compartment in passenger seat box and remove the compartment. I am still going to try and source the Aero Tank. (New or used) I have left a phone message with them - but due to the covid 19 "lock down" in California they may be closed for a while.
Why would you fab a tank when the off the shelf factory tank will fit as described in post 13?Thanks for the recommendations CDwWan. I have a NAS '97 D90 that has a small amp and some type of ecu inside the passenger tool box. I will look at the harnesses and see if I can relocate them to fit inside my center console. (There is plenty of space inside the console - I replaced the factory plastic console a long time ago with a stainless steel console I fabricated). I just got off the phone with AeroTank and they said they no longer have the drawings for the Defender tank they use to make. SO, I will start looking to other options including the an ROW under seat tank or going to a local fabricator with my design that would be similar to the Aero Tank design.
What I want is a simple way to carry 10 gals of fuel that is not connected to any system on the truck. Like jerry cans. There are some very simple battery operated hand held pumps to transfer fuel from aux tanks to the stock fuel tank. If there were jerry cans that could be carried on there sides I would fabricate a cradle and skid plate and would put them under the floor on the passenger side between the trailing arm horns and radius are horns. (like the areo tank) . The aero tank is sort of Pie shaped and is about 4"deep and fits in that location I described. If I can't find what I like I am willing to design and fabricate it . I attached a pic of my s.s. door panel and speaker box. When My truck was 5 years old the plastic door panels were cracking . I wanted something that would last the life of the truck and give me a couple more inches of "Knee space". The same goes for the center and dash consoles. They were plastic and were showing their age so I replaced them with my own fabrications. The reason I purchased my truck was use it - not to have a show room truck stored in a Nitrogen filled plastic bubble. I attached the pics to show you where I am coming from. (it is the KISS principal) (Keep It Simple) I see that some other sources for tanks have been posted on this threadWhy would you fab a tank when the off the shelf factory tank will fit as described in post 13?
I don't really care which way you go, it's your 90, but curious as to why you would have a custom shop build you something that is already available off the shelf?
