Gotcha - my mistake! You said replacement tank and I read additional tank

I have seen some larger capacity replacement tanks as well - what I didn't like with those was they then stuck out lower than the chassis rails. I'm not sure whether the ones you're looking at do as well or whether you can get a bash plate that would protect it...

I haven't seen any additional tanks - do you have a link? My Patrol had an auxiliary tank and it gave me some confidence when filling up with dodgy fuel, I could always keep a supply of good quality city fuel in the aux.

The other problem here is that Neil will be talking D40 not NP300. Im pretty sure long ranger make an additional and a larger tank for the D40, i wouldn't have a clue about the NP300 though.

This was the aux tank I'd seen for the D40:

Ok, it's been a while. Work has kept me busy but it's time to start work on my auxiliary battery setup.

In the mean time, here's a pic from work yesterday with three generations of Nav living in harmony. (Interestingly, the D40 is the oldest of these by a good few years.)

That price appears ludacris! I'm pretty sure you could get one custom fabbed for a good deal less.

Just checking in to say I'm not dead and I haven't abandoned my Navara, but the temperatures here lately have meant the idea of lying on my concrete driveway in the sun doesn't fill me with joy...



Once the heat breaks, I'll resume my battery project.

In the mean time I have bought a new, heavier trailer (about 1,200kg laden) which has electric brakes. Navara is off to have the brake controller fitted. The Nissan genuine tow bar harness is meant to be "pre-wired" for this, but it seems considerably cheaper to send it to an auto electrician who will run their own wires because Nissan can't/won't provide a wiring diagram to let us use theirs.

It's a pity we couldn't do an average with our temperatures to keep us all happy.

It gets better over the next few days, but not much. Nobbys Head is a lighthouse sticking out into the sea; inland from it, where I live, it's usually 5 degrees hotter (or colder):


My next big adventure is locked in for March. A sneak preview (not my picture):
