Dalk kan jy n tenk by David in Warmbad kry wat 40l is. Dit behoort te pas. Gelukkig is dit n Diesel en kry dalk nog meer op jou 32l as ons met 40l petrol. :lol:
Marino, ag ek trek sommer julle been, ek dink nie dit is die moeite werd om n groter tenk in te sit nie omdat ek soveel ander goed het wat ek eerder wil doen.
Ek kan darem 800km - 850Km kry met my twee tenks :biggrin:

So I drove the main tank realy empty this week, the needle below the the E mark. I was on the south coast and any one familiar with the road between Shelly Beach and Margate will know it's up down up down. I wanted to fill up in Margate but as we passed Uvongo Spar the revs started hungting up and down and the car died, I was able to coast it into the Engen garage and man never think your power steering isn't working that machine is a beast worse than a fully laden ox wagon to steer.

End of the day filled it to the brim 90 liter in main tank and 37 liter on the sub.

Teen 6km/l kan ek 1050km's op my tanks kry, as ek mooi ry bietjie meer.
95l + 80l subtank...
Het die naweek uitgevind dat die sub tank die voorste tank is, eerste keer dat ek nie altwee tanks ter selfde tyd vol maak nie.
Een of ander rede het ek altyd gedink die hoof tank sit voor, maar nou dat ek daaroor dink maak dit meer sin...
