147 fuel tank capacity.

I know what the manual says, but how much really fits in?
This morning I filled up and got 61.53 Litres in. Last time it was 60.60 Litres.

Obviously, I don't want to find out by grinding to a halt!

What is the most that anybody has squeezed in?

Re: 147 fuel tank capacity.

About 61 is the most I've got in, wouldn't want to push much more than that!

Re: 147 fuel tank capacity.

61.79 litres is my current record. The tank is 60 litres, the reserve the book quotes is part of the 60 litres itself. Anything over the 60 litres is what is in the pipes to the engine and maybe the nozzle to the tank if you really brim it.

Plus when I was pulling into the garage that time the car cut out on me 10 feet from the pump. Now thats cutting it as close as you can get.

Re: 147 fuel tank capacity.

Managed 64 litres once I thought it was 60 litres + 5 litres reserve?
