Ladies, ladies, please. An end to "yah! booh! politiks" pliz.

The range extender replaces the ability to use the rear seats. (Kind of sits on top if the space).

You could get more range also by fitting an EGT lean-o-meter and lean to max plus fly higher. So you can get more than 3hrs from a standard R44 without the extra drop tanks (but the PoH does not recommend leaning) - see sep thread on this somewhere here.
