Nah, the ute's have a completely different fuel tank to the sedans. It's actually positioned under neath the tray right behind the cabin.

You need to get a long range tank from another ute sorry.

Yep. $30 each from supercheap. They're red in colour, you'll find them in the 'jerry can' aisle.

Seriously, you've got a ute! That's all i used to do....works wonders for waking you up too, standing on the side of the road, 2am in the middle of nowhere with footy shorts and a singlet on with -5 degree wind blowing up your shorts lol

Apparently, the V6 sedan came with a 59L tank, the V8 sedan came with a 73L tank.
As far as the ute goes, the V6 & V8 came with the same tank (64L), with no long range option.

I've also had a look for aftermarket long range tanks, as I recall someone did them, but I haven't found anything thus far.

So it looks like jerry cans might be your cheapest option so far :p

EDIT: Just saw the VG ute came with 68L tank, whether it's a typo or not, wouldn't be worth the root around for an extra 4 litres lol

Hmm, I always thought there was an option for the larger tank. Especially given there is so much extra room next to the stock tank.

I do however just use a jerry can or two i the back. Gives you so much more fuel/range than any long range tank ever could. One of the best things about having a ute bud.

Perhaps you should just consider doing that, maybe make up a custom lockable box to store them in even.
