The fuel tank is made from zintex to ensure your tank stays clean and rust-free. It is externally epoxy powder coated for maximum durability and has the addition of a 12mm UHMW slider plate to protect the underside of the tank as well as prevent you from getting snagged or hung up. This is an easily replaceable protection component to ensure years of off-road use. The tank comes standard with a bolt-on middle exhaust section for easy fitment.
What is UHMW
UHMW (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene) is an extremely tough plastic with high abrasion and wear resistance. The versatility of polyethylene has made it a popular plastic for countless industrial applications that require durability, low friction, and chemical resistance. Applications include UHMW wear strips, chain guides, packaging machinery parts, and marine dock fender pads
We have included a replacement longer float arm which ensures the gauge works from full to empty to closely mimic the original smaller tank. However, as the tank is twice as big you can expect the gauge operation to also be magnified by a factor of two, so if you travelled for 50 km before the needle left the full mark with the original tank, you can now expect it to take approximately 100km, likewise if you could travel for 50 km once the needle hit the empty mark, this also will be approximately double the OEM distance you could travel.
The factory tank capacity of 40 litres is built into the OEM Firmware and is unable to be modified at this time so unfortunately the Range Function will not function as designed. However the Range calculation is based on the average fuel consumption and 85% of the OEM tank capacity. Manually doubling the displayed range will give you a rough indication of your expected actual range. All other functions will continue to work as normal.
