Wondering what solutions people are using to carry extra fuel for a longer trips besides jerry cans inside the car.

Retired from Corrections....I have stories.
I carry Roto-pax. 2 2gal tanks. After driving the Lonely Hyw US 50 across Utah and Nevada and almost running out of fuel. I thought better safe than sorry. I took 20.4 gallon of fuel to fill up a 21 gallon tank. There was no way I was making it to the next fuel station.

I got the long range tank (64L) as the auxiliary tank + Trailrax rotopax side mount for another 30L.

if I really want then I can go as high as 175L (81+64+30).

Alamein you have the 3.6P correct there seems to be no aux tank for the 2.2D, guessing this is to do with the adblue ..

Yes correct, I got the 3.6L. I believe the aux tank for the diesel is still under development and will be smaller in size (45L).

your best bet for now will be the trailrax solution. They are very handy, love mine. Just checked the spec of trailrax again. It can carry 30L in each side for a total of 60L.

so correction, my total fuel carrying capacity is 205L (81+64+30+30). Plenty for end of the world trip!

Yes I did. First accessory I bought, after signing the order document for my JL in feb-19. Got it delivered 6 months before the JL finally showed up.

this days I use this for potable water (as got the long range tank installed). You can mount shovel/maxtrax etc.

not a big fan of roof rack, this is my "side rack" to carry stuff.

How do you find the side rack when off road on the narrow bush tracks?
