Just curious, would the distance to empty still work correctly with a different size tank than stock?

I don't want it for my JLU. But I'll be very interested when I get a Gladiator.

gosh dangit... why california... why!
Do y’all deliver to PO Boxes? Asking for a friend.
We're planning on eventually getting this CARB certified but that may take a while; there shouldn't be any reason that these won't pass because our system does not break vacuum and does not affect the evap system functionality.

Pricing TBA, still waiting on a few certifications. Just to be upfront this is a pretty involved install: still working on the instructions but for the main tank its the same procedure as a fuel tank replacement. The aux tank install does require relocating some stuff.

Nothing is deleted or removed from the vehicle besides the stock main tank which is replaced altogether. The most complex part of the install is actually the fuel crossover and the filler tube replacement. No drilling, cutting, or welding is required for installation. Everything is completely bolt in.

Because the fuel float still works correctly (we reuse the pump hat and bucket assembly) on our extended range JL fuel tank, the main tank fuel gauge will still report correctly. The range or distance to empty won't report correctly without reprogramming. Taser should already have access to the tables however.

We'll build a Gladiator version as well and we have plans to build a diesel version when they materialize.


Can the auxiliary tank be used with the stock tank? When will they be available?
No, the reason that the main tank must be paired with the aux tank is not because of the few gallons of capacity that the main fuel tank gains, but rather instead this way during installation you won't have to drill the stock tank. During the fill process, when the main tank has reached capacity the aux tank is automatically filled through the same fuel filler port and tube (with a y branch). We decided against a version that is compatible with the stock because of the increased risk associated with drilling or modifying the stock tank.


We'll have more info and pictures after EJS. Please let me know if you guys have any more questions,

Thanks!

Great! Thanks for the response. I’ll keep an eye out.
