Anyone know what the capacity of the standard tank is? (the sort pictured below)

I have got 34 litres in mine when I ran it right down low.

Mine does have some injection pumps in and a swirl pot. Also I moved the filler, as the standard one does cause a small air lock to be formed in the top of the tank not getting full capacity.


A quick measure and a bit of maths you can confirm the capacity.

GTM used to quote the capacity as 8.5 gallons on their advertising brochures.
