I would suggest you go for another standard tank fitted next to the original one. By doing this you will still get accurate readings from your standard fuel gauge and the weight of the extra fuel will be between the two axles.

I’ve got a tank fitted above my spare and the fuel gauge only drops below full when the second tank is almost empty.

Should also not be that expensive… 8)

Sorry Greenhorn, I thought you were driving a SFA. :oops: Not sure if this would be possible on your Hilux.....
