On the subject of ur-quattro fuel tanks.....

Well seeing how we're talking about fuel tanks I am wondering why I can never
get mine fully filled. Today I tried to squeeze all I could - 15.45 US gallons
with the gauge indicating a little over three forths. When I stopped for gas I
was a little under a quarter tank by the gauge. If the tank holds 23.8 gallons
(I bet that's a nice even number in metric) that would indicate I had 8.35
gallons in the tank - more then a quarter tank. A quarter tank would be 5.95
 So the gauge doesn't ever read full on the one side and also indicates less
on the other. An interesting note I found while reviewing receipts from
previous owners, a mechanic once wrote "don't run fuel below a quarter tank"
