It would be brave to trust the fuel gauge to the extent of doing 100miles plus on an indicated quarter tank when you don't know its quirks, mine goes for miles then suddenly drops like a stone. Then again I am a belt and braces type I never let mine drop below quarter tank.

Good luck with your new van though.

Isn`t there anywhere near to where you are collecting it from, to fill up, better to be safe than sorry.it will need some anyway sooner rather than later. mine holds 80 litres,

Have a good trip home. how exciting, enjoy. up!

Could you not syphon some out of yours into a can, ready to put in the Duetto?
