Hello everybody, I still pursue the extended range issue – aux. tank in the rear - 160l/42gal. Found a LRA distributor in Belgium. When reading the installation manual “TLC80RAX” there is a work step as follows:

5. Cut the original filler neck pipe directly in line with the inside of the chassis rail. NOTE: WHEN CUTTING FILL NECK DO NOT USE TOOL THAT WILL CREATE SPARKS OR FLAMES.

Is there a re-usage/installation of the original filler possible in case I would refit and detach the aux. tank? Overhere I will not fulfill the technical inspection association requirements. But for Algeria traveller it would bother me.

Does anyone has a pic of what and where the cutting has to be excecuted? Many thanks.

You can source OEM toyota dual filler neck and just replace the piece. There are some assembled aftermarket options.

I would cut it out with a hacksaw down lower. Consider emptying your tank first regardless.

Pictures of my dual filler neck in my one ton thread swap. (link below page 5)
