Default 307 Fuel Tank

Hey everyone - I was under the impression that the fuel tank on a 307 1.6HDi (as per owners manual) was 60 litres!?

I just filled up and put 67 litres in - that seems unusual? I've only ever got to 63 litres before (I assumed that the 3 litres was capacity between tank and opening).

Is that unusual? Or have I been ripped off?

Depends how empty the tank was. If it was known to be completely, physically empty then you can confirm the capacity. Going by your gauge does not really allow accurate readings.

I'm not going by my gauge, I'm going by the fuel pump. Unless there's physical capacity to hold 7 litres between the fuel tank & the fuel cap, something is very wrong.

Could be but unless you can categorically prove the tanks and pipes capacity by completely draining and then filling it would be hard to prove, or get the authorities to check the garages equipment.

Tank will have a 60 litre capacity if thats what the handbook says BUT from empty it will hold more i have 3 clios all the same 1 can be run down to light on and it takes about 45 litres till it seems full but the other run down till light on will take 50 litres sometimes more the 3rd i have stopped at 60 litres but it still wants more !! but tank capacity is supposed to be 50 litres.

Only way to know for sure is run it till it runs out then fill it completely full but thats just not practical.

Every car i have ever known has varying capacity as the gauges are not always accurate and when it says your done you could have anything between none and 5 litres left!
