Thumbs down Adding longrange fuel tank

Recently became the proud owner of a 2door Jeep Wrangler petrol 2011 model. From australia we ordered an additional fueltank see: http://www.thelongranger.com.au/jklo....html#TA64PAHD

While looking undernearth the car there is a square shaped black box (approx 6 x 10 x 16 inch) at the location where the second tank is supposed to be mounted. See attached pictures to get an impression

Anyone known what this box possibly can be?

I think you are referring to your evap canister. There are kits out there to relocate it over you rear axle.

Glwood: Thanks for you quick answer. Can you indicate me what this is meant for? Could it easily be placed at a different location?

Help much appreciated. while buying the longranger tank they assurred me it would fit the 2011 model. But with this canister there I don't know how the tank can be placed there.

For emissions control.

From the website you linked above:

Other Modifications: The Carbon Canister Is Relocated With All Parts Required Supplied In Kit.

Also how much does that extra gas tank cost? I was putting on a lift last week and was saying how much Room there is under there for a bigger gas tank and if the cost wasn't to bad I would consider it

Alasha: sounds very interesting as it seems that I will have to relocate it. especially as sinduda2 mentions it is expensive to replace.

Still no idea what is meant for though.

Ok, Carbon canister and evaporation canister are the same thing as I understand now. The installation movie on the longranger website shows a canister being removed, but that was much smaller and drum shaped? See at 38 seconds: http://www.youtube.com/thelongranger.../5/rGK9v4VyHGQ

Tank for the two doors is only 42 liters unfortunately. And costs are approx 1470 AUD, but shipment can be fairly expensive, depending on destintion. Although expensive I thought to do this right when getting the new car, to have most advantage of it.

But Is it adding 42 liters to the original 70 liters ?

yes it is a seperate tank, with a switch to pumps fuel from the 42 to the main tank in case you need it. Your total fuel size will be 112 liter, giving you slightly more range withour having to carry Jerry cans in the limited space when camping. Furthermore it doesnt reduce your ground clearance.
