Default Anyone have any solutions to adding additional fuel?

Hey guys,

I do a lot of overland camping and I've been struggling with longer road trips due to our relatively small tank size. Effectively, with 4 wheeling through rocky terrain, washboard roads, and all the weight of the roof top tent, ARB fridge, etc I'll probably get anywhere from 7-10 mpg on overland trips.

I've looked into a few options, but it seems that I'll need a new rear bumper since the OEM bumper can't really hold much weight (like Rotopax mounted on the spare).

I'm trying not to spend a few thousand on a new bumper, but if I have to, I'll do it.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks all!

There some guys looking at fuel tanks under the cargo area for the FJC since there is not enough room for a spare (which is on the rear door).

Roof rack with fuel cans, you can get 100 lbs of fuel up there.

I have two 5gal cans on the roof from FrontRunner.com. Not as convenient as off the bumper but it works fine.

Default Aux fuel tank

I have an additional 19gal auxiliary tank under the cargo area of my 2007 FJC. It doubles my range. We pull a popup tent trailer and still are getting around 13 to 14 mpg. The tank is all aluminum with a skid plate. The original filler pipe has a "Y" added to fill both tanks. I manually transfer fuel from the auxiliary tank to the main tank with a fuel pump in the auxiliary tank. Plus I replaced the compass on the dash with a dual gauge for the auxiliary tank. It was a little pricey but well worth the peace of mind & I don't have 5gal cans of gas hanging all over my FJC.

Aloha,
