Needless to say the top overflowed into the toolbox and effectively added another 40 gallons of red dye diesel to allow all his tools and gear to soak until he returned.

Lol that would be really really crappy. At least his tools were nicely oiled :-)

I finally did the mod. I have a stock yj with 1.25" shackle lift. Took little over an hour. Hardest part and most time consuming was getting the inner tube and cutting it. I cut off 8"!

I picked up 80-90 miles with getting 17+mpg.

This was more than 30 minutes for me..... The hose was rotted on there. Took like 45 minutes to rip it off and a trip to the parts store to get a new hose due to it being so ****ed up.

You only have to run out once. Get a 2 1/2 gal gas can, fill it up, and run your jeep till it dies. Put the 2.5 gals in and go to a gas station. Fill it up.

Most cases with the gauge is dirty contacts either at the tank or cluster. Not really a hard fix, just can be a bit time consuming. Did the 20 gallon mod also .. sweet!! I have 64 miles a day (round trip total) 4 x a week to work. Those few extra gallons meant enough that I dont have to fill up one more time to finish out the drive to work.

Pulling that tube from the tank was a PITA though !!!
