Fuel tanks

1. ## Fuel tanks

On a 19' cp, fuel tanks measure 6'x8"x7 1/2" with about 1" taper on the back side..how much fuel do this hold ?

3. You need another dimension to make that calculation.

6. Just remember the Formula (L x W x H then divide by 231)

Your tanks hold roughly 18.7 gallons.

That works if there is no taper to the tank. If the tank has a taper top to bottom you need to know the width at the top and at the bottom.

I was thinking 10-11 gallons each, but can't really remember.

13. run it dry then fill it full.....

14. WOW if my calculations are correct 18.7 per side = 280.5 lbs total. not to mention the cooler
