    Its roughly about 8 or 9 litres when the orange light comes on in mine.

    Based on a 65 litre tank and having to fill it up with around 54/5 ish litres .


    Its loads anyway , but , i dunno how long i could put up with that orange light burning into my eyeball:crazy:

    and all the gunk from the petrol tank cloging your fuel filter!!

    dont forget the fuel pump is cooled by the petrol running through it.
