Just got this update from Long Range America today.

-The Tank will be around 37gal, hopefully around the $2000 mark plus shipping and will be here end of the year in limited numbers.

-We will have a mailing list sign up, up and live soon where the tanks will be first come first serve once we finalize fitment.

Looking forward to getting the Ranger with a LRA tank under it again!

Man! 37 gallons!

I could expand Soupie's business and become a long-haul dumper! =D

This sure would work better than my original plan (which affected my dumpability).

$2000 for a gas tank? Is it made of platinum?
Yeah it’s expensive but that’s the typical prices for double the fuel tank. I’ve been in many close calls out exploring even after using my spare fuel where this would have put me in a perfect state of mind knowing the fuel is there.
It’s just all where you travel. This tank isn’t for everyone but I do know it’s perfect for me.

Limited production. They're likely not going to sell a lot of these so unfortunately those that want one have to pay a bit of a premium. They also need to offset the hours sunk into R&D.

The price is pretty similar to the prices that I was told when I got my first LRA tank.

How does replacing the tank affect the fuel gage accuracy?
I'm sure a new sending unit is included.


My question is how much clearance is lost. With that large of an increase I'm betting it hangs down a bit.

Plus shipping!! For that price they ought to install it also. I would like a larger capacity gas tank but $2k? If it came with better mileage it would be worth it.
