You have to remove the tank and pull the fuel pump to access the filler tube inside the tank. Once the pump is out, reach inside with a razor knife and cut the extended filler tube as high as you can get it.

Sandhara,

ALL TJ's have a 19 gallon tank, but the filler hose goes into the tank further on some, allowing it to only fill to about 15 gallons. so you can drop the tank out, cut the filler hose on the inside of the tank allowing it to fill up more.

here's a link for you

gas tank conversion?

Does this Mod through off the fuel guage? With gas prices climbing I like to monitor my fuel mileage.

Sandhara Thank you

amerijeep Are you sure about the 19 gallon number? Mine holds 22. Maybe the TJ and YJ don't have the same tank.

As far as gas prices go, I only have to gas mine up about every 6 weeks give or take.

khenderson so that you can go more than 200 miles on a tank. i went to minnesota a while back and it was aggravating to only get 220 on a tank. and when you're in the middle of nowhere with no gas stations around, it's nice to have that extra 5 gallons around.

I can barely afford to pay for a full tank now...

GOD, why would I want it to cost more?

Sandhara Woah, Woah, Woah, do what now?????
07-27-2005 10:49 AM
amerijeep Same tank. I did mine. It was holding 15 before. Now it holds 22. Everything worked out good on it. It reads full for about the first 50 miles or so before the needle on the gauge moves.

Gas tank capacity

Any of you know if all TJ's had a 19 gallon tank, but the filler hose was longer on some, making them 15 gallons, or if they actually had two different size tanks? Specifically 97. I want to do the gas tank mod for a little extra capacity, but would hate to drop the tank out and find that it is actually a 15 gallon tank.
