Factory turbo models come with twin batterys as standard [extra cranking power for the diesel donk] 3rd battery sit's next to the fuel pump area on the passenger side , used for running goodies like the lights, fridge etc .
Bull bar & side rails are steel
Standard 96ltr fuel tank is still there in the middle , but the 45ltr 2nd tank has been replaced with a combo fuel & water tank = fuel size 122ltrs water 55ltrs , all up diesel is 218ltrs .
I like to do & plan the big outback desert runs etc .
No don't tow , I either take the swags or Southern Cross touring tent .
14.4ltrs/100kms was the normal , but with the new 3inch full mendrel bend exhaust it's down to 14.1ltrs/100kms , that's fully loaded & easy sitting around 100km/hour .
Thanks Paul and yes I know about the twin batteries as I too have one and that is why I was interested in what you had done and where you mounted the third battery.
I average 14/100 round town and about 14.5/100 when towing a fully loaded camper. Am also looking at upgrading the exhaust as well as soon as funds permit.
Did you buy the second tank combo as standard or was it a special build??
How/where do you access the water??
Am in the planning stages of another outback trip at the end of the year so understand what you are saying.
Thanks for the info.
