More Gas Tank

I have almost come to accept the crappy milage but hate the little 19 gal tank. Has anyone mounted an additional tank somewhere or replaced the stock with something in the 24-30 gal range???

I looked into it once for my LJ and it was pretty expensive if you want to keep the Jeep looking stock. Gen-Right has some tanks available if you want some ideas:

JEEP PARTS | JEEP ACCESSORIES | JEEP BUMPERS | Gas Tanks

If you dont have a rear seat you could always install a 5-10 gallon fuel cell or just carry Jerries.

I am thinking of something somone here suggested - there is a fuel cell that is 34" x 14" high and 11" deep and would fit across and behind the front seats, but now I am wondering how to dump that into the tank... I carry 2 jerry cans also, but I just want to be able to haul more. On some of our SAR callouts, I could use up half a tank just getting to the search area...

Depending on what your jeep is built for I have seen people build bumpers and nerf bars that are able to be filled with fuel water compressed air ect. Kinda scary driving around with a bumper full of gas if you ask me.

it wont be cheap, but its an option: aux fuel tank

this option from genright will give you an extra 5 gallons..
GenRight's Jeep TJ/LJ Extended Range Gas Tank

they also carry a seperate fuel tank that would go in the back:
GenRight's Universal Tank

I'd love to have the Gen-Right tank that adds 11 gallons for my LJ, but that $1100 price tag keeps getting in the way...

I'd love to buy a lot of things from their site but the errors keep me from doing so.

Just buy like 3 Jerry cans thatll be under 200 bucks, 5 gals a piece. And, you can just build a rack to store them on.
