Certainly bigger than 60l, even the Cav was 69 litres. I can pay more than 60 to fill up - at 92p/l, so I'm guessing closer to 80l.

Was interesting lately - normally get a FC reading of 300-310 miles for a full tank, this is with 2 mile trips to the supermarket and daily 8 mile trips each way dual carriageway driving to work. Went up to Scotland recently, stopped to refill in Fort William (after some 300 miles on the motorway - 1 stop, and 2-3 miles town travel to get onto motorway) - FC came back with 512 miles. I could have kissed the miggy. Quite a graphic demonstration to me how poor the miggy is around town, and how unsuited to my day-to-day life. But while I can afford it, I'm not swapping her for anything.

It has pressure cut off valves before and after the tank.....do any damage to the filler pipe or the pipe to the engine and the valves shut the lpg off.

If you manage to hole the tank.......then run  ;D

Before the MV6 was stripped I drove it about 5 feet under its own power on gas.

In one day I drove

A rubbish Saab LPT hire courtesy car, test drove silver CD and moved the MV6 the last one was best

The 2.6 was actually pretty good made the turbo Saab feel slow
