Long Ranger Fuel Tank - RAM 2500 / 3500
The Long Ranger 95L Auxiliary fuel tanks are a safe and simple way to increase your vehicle’s travelling range. Additional fuel capacity is essential for any 4WD heading off into remote areas.
Cross Break Strengthening. This is a simple and effective feature to aid in the stiffening of large flat panels. This technique reduces the risk of a fuel or water tank suffering from fatigue-related stress cracks when travelling on extreme corrugations.
Leading Edge Deflection Angle. Incorporating a leading edge deflection angle on the front lower section of the fuel tank allows road debris to be easily deflected. This means the tank is marginally smaller in capacity, but in those tricky situations going over mounds of dirt and rocks, you are less likely to get hung up, than on a tank which hangs to low with a square leading edge.
Max Fold. Using this feature we maximise the sheet by making the base of the fuel tank from one side to the other in one continuous piece of metal. This ensures the minimum amount of heat and possible stress from welded joins.
Hydrostatic Pressure Test. At The LongRanger factory, each and every fuel and water tank undergoes a pressure test while being placed underwater at a maximum of 5 psi.
The Long Ranger Fuel Hose. The LongRanger fuel delivery hose is manufactured to SAE standards. Our fuel hose can be used in applications such as: Automotive fuel lines, emission control hose and commercial usage. Suitable for both diesel, leaded and unleaded fuels.
Pac-Man. You guessed it, we have pacmen inside our tanks working away to help strengthen the high-stress areas. While your happily driving along those rough corrugated outback dirt roads listening to your favourite country music in the air-conditioned comfort of your new 4WD, these little guys are busy working away
Shape. Good design practices are what make a fuel tank both usable and functional. Some manufactures build cheap large sheet metal boxes and bolt them under a vehicle and call it a fuel tank. At the Long Ranger we take the design a little more serious. Attention to detail and decades of experience building tanks has taught us what it takes to make a great product.
Parallel Break Strengthening. Just like CBS this feature aids in the stiffening of large flat panels and reduces the risk of a fuel or water tank suffering from fatigue-related stress cracks when travelling on extreme corrugations. We usually incorporate these on the very bottom of a tank.
Baffles. Help add strength to the bottom of a tank, this is especially important for a 4WD when bottoming the tank out on obstacles with the pickup unit sitting on the bottom which could be damaged, if the new tank design is lower than the OEM tank this is even more important with the tank being more vulnerable to accidental obstacle contact. A well-designed long-range tank should incorporate baffles for improved offroad performance as baffles also help retain the fuel around the pickup unit. With long-range tanks generally being longer or wider than the OEM tank when low on fuel it can “run away” from the pickup when driving in undulating terrain and possibly cause the engine to starve for fuel leaving you in an unpredictable situation and potentially unsafe location.
