Who cares?! Their money. Their truck. Their rules. Or maybe it’s cause it’s a mod and it just stupid window tint...

As for the actual tank, it has a built in separate fuel gauge and pump. When it senses your primary tank is at a certain level, it starts to fill from the auxiliary. It’s pretty neat overall.

And gas weighs just a hair over 6 pounds, so it’s less than 200lbs. An aftermarket bumper with full size spare and full jerry cans will be north of that. That particular poster only had a hitch tire carrier. So he may be around the same weight as any other 4Runner running about the back country.

People outfit their trucks with what they need and want. Ideas are great. New items are great.

Ah! In that case, scratch my earlier post....a pretty good deal for that much fuel.

53 gal tank x 12mpg = 636miles per tank(s)
20 gal tank x 17mpg = 340 miles per oem tank
Some interesting math. Only the added weight of the gas figures into the decreased mileage?

Comparing mpg of a stock 4Runner to the mpg of a vehicle with "tons of other gear" and then blaming the fuel weight.....

Frankly if you are down to 12 then you seriously need to re-gear, but that costs more $$$$

Lots of folks would say any/all/most mods are a waste of money. If it makes you happy, increases pride of ownership better functionality, and you can afford it, go for it...

Iíve found that generally speaking, the people who preach to others about how/what they should be giving, give little to nothing themselves.
