Title says it all.... have I got a bigger tank or did I use a dodgy pump!?!?
Don't forget the exhaust either, since this is routed around the 'corner' of the larger tank it would need to be changed as well.i think theres 3 sizes of tank 32L 34L and 42L they could be swapped over but its not as simple as just swapping the tank , as sure the instrument cluster is also mated as such to tank size along with the fuel pick up and level sender
I'm not sure that there's any great advantage in fitting the larger tank? I can easily cover over 350 miles with my full 32 L tank. There's plenty of filling stations and it's no great chore to fill up? I have an LPG powered Mercedes SLK. IT does around 220 miles on its tank of LPG AND there isn't that many stations selling LPG! There .... both ends of the Spectrum! LOL!i think theres 3 sizes of tank 32L 34L and 42L they could be swapped over but its not as simple as just swapping the tank , as sure the instrument cluster is also mated as such to tank size along with the fuel pick up and level sender
Yes, then when it was stated to be the first "3 litre" car to go into mass production, you're saying that it's a fact! (3L fuel per 100km) That's a LONG way to go on so little fuel!Even though the tank is only 21L i get 6-700km on one tank depending on driving style.
I looked into a 34 to 42 litre tank swap some time ago (decided it was not worth the effort) but just for clarity there is a error in 'Audifan' details above.Tank size changing is not straight forward. The 1.2 can not EASILY be retrofitted with a larger tank, While the 34 / 42 shares the same mountings the rear exhaust section routes differently and some brackets are in a different location. Add to that the instrument cluster is I believe hard coded to the fuel tank size and the polarity is reversed to the gauge. Even with a very heavy right foot these are still very economical cars that a lot of far more modern vehicles struggle to match let alone beat. Everyone drives the way they want to either to get maximum range per tank or play with far bigger cars in the fast lane, that is there choice. In short the gauge is directly connected to your right foot, and by changing slightly you may improve economy assuming the car is well serviced and does not have issues like binding brakes , a top box or is towing. I like my happy medium that returns about 47 mpg and I am happy with that. Same driving style in a 1.6 petrol cavalier returned 23 mpg!!!!!!
