would have thought you'd take yours out and use the whole setup, i would think the wiring is all the same.

You'd need to add the wiring to switch between tanks, the shutoff solenoids for each tank, a pump and sender for the auxilliary tank - which is smaller than the main tank 58L, main 68L.
If ABS is not fitted, there are 4 wires from that area back to the dash which you could use.
The tanks fill by gravity feed between main and auxilliary, so IIRC, the std main tank has a mod for a pipe on the aux tank side.

So essentially, a complete outback setup would be the easiest way - it will all fit in the cavity, only problem is sourcing a setup, as I'd think they'd be scarce.
