Hi everyone - new here - looking for information on adding secondary fuel tank.
So a couple of questions if anyone can provide some information . . .
Has anyone installed a second tank (perhaps Brown Davis 110l) in a 2017-onwards 79 SC?
If so, has anyone installed an OEM sub tank switch, rather than the switch supplied with the new aux tank?
Is the OEM sub tank switch DPDT and suitable replacement for the supplied switch?
Any helpful advice would be appreciated.

If I understand correct you want to fit a second tank to your 79 single cab?
If so you should be able to get a tank which would pretty much be a straight fit from the dealers, as here by us the 79 series comes with dual tanks from factory. All works with a sub tank switch on dash and runs along with the standard fuel gauge.

Hi and thanks for the response. To clarify my situation, the new 79 series sold in Australia now only have one tank (130l) - the sub tank switch is gone and the second fuel gauge is gone also. There are a couple of aftermarket sub tanks available (eg. Brown Davis 110l) but they provide a pretty ordinary looking switch and gauge that does not look as good as it could - it does the job fine, but ! - hence the questions to make it look as factory as possible.
