    Hi, this afternoon i put 49 1/2 lts fuel in my '75 bus.Was i running on fumes or did i still have a few lts in the tank.(fuel gauge doesn't work,use a post it note instead). What can the fuel tank hold and what sort of range can other members get to a tank?Cheers.

    Pretty sure it's 60 for low lights and 55 for late bays.... I've had both and agree with the figures

    You're assuming we could add 49 1/2 lts & 5 and a half litres from different responses and know the answer:p:D. Kombi drivers:oops:;).
