The Toyota FJ Cruiser has been updated with two new additions to tempt 4×4 fans into exploring their limits.

More than doubling the fuel capacity, and range, of the Toyota FJ Cruiser is a new 87-litre sub-tank. Joining the existing 72-litre main tank, the extra reserve sees total fuel capacity reach 159 litres, allowing for a range of almost 1400km based on the FJ Cruiser’s 11.4 litres per 100km combined cycle fuel economy rating.

Adding to the 4×4 ability of the Toyota FJ Cruiser is a new off-road cruise control system dubbed ‘Crawl’.

Crawl allows for ‘feet-off’ control over severe or slippery terrain and when freeing a stuck vehicle, as well as when traversing up and down steep hills or through mud, sand, gravel or water. By engaging L4 (low-range) – and temporarily disengaging at speeds above 25km/h, or above 10km/h when the rear differential is locked – Crawl automatically maintains a low uniform vehicle speed uphill and downhill by controlling both engine output and brake pressure, allowing drivers to solely concentrate on steering.

To engage the system the vehicle must be stopped with the foot brake on and parking brake off, transfer gear position in L4 and shift lever in any position except Park or Neutral, the car’s vehicle stability control system set to Normal, the second-gear start system switched off and all doors closed. A speed-selector dial on the overhead console then provides the choice of five speeds.

The part-time 4×4 Toyota FJ Cruiser is powered by a 200kW/380Nm 4.0-litre V6 petrol engine and five-speed automatic transmission, and is only available as a single specification model priced from $47,990, which includes $210 services under Toyota’s Service Advantage capped-price servicing program.

Can anyone from Australia ask their Toyota dealers for the parts numbers necessary to install the new 87L sub-tank?

Thanks :)

G'day FJC-4x4,
I'll check it out for you, however the part numbers used by Toyota Australia are totally different to Nth American part numbers, so not sure how much use you'll get from it.
Cheers

We are going to have to seriously put all of our brains together to figure out how to Aussie spec our gas tanks. I am so excited for the potential to have Toyota designed parts!

One of the Aus guys got his Dealer to price this up for him. He stopped when he hit $2000, and hadn't even started looking into any electrical parts or other parts required to fit it.

Going to be much cheaper to go with a Long Ranger or LRA, and you get the added benefit of a larger tank as well.

I got word back from my buddy about ordering Aus parts in the US. It is difficult because US uses a 10 digit part number. When I passed him the Aus part numbers, he checked and it got nowhere. The guys here apparently don't have the ability to check international. It would probably require someone working both sides of the fence to make it happen easily. I won't say it can't be done, but I will say it most likely will be a while before we can go to the local Toyota dealer and order a kit.

Sorry for the delay. Work has kept my Internet time to a minimum.

G'day,
The challenge will be getting the two parties working together ... and when you add up the cost .. I dare say swapping the main tank for an aftermarket tank ,and if so desired adding an Aux after market tank would give you more gallons, and be cheaper, in the long run.
Still its an interesting idea.
An after market replacement main tank at 31 gallons will cost around about $1500-1600 fitted .
Aux aftermarket are cheaper, I believe, so even if you call it $3000 all up .. I think by the time you factor just the OEM Aux tank, fitted, you'd be close to that mark if not more..
I'll ask my Toyota contact again tomorrow, if he can price up the Aux tank yet.
Cheers
Baz
