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

I ran out of gas in the '87 4000 csq once (while I was pulling to the
forward pump). Promptly filled the 18.5 gallon tank with 18.8 gallons (still
have the receipt). I can only assume that the .3 extra gallon was the filler
neck. On the 4000 there is an adjuster for the fuel gauge. You can get to it
through the right vent on the instrument housing, it slide the face of the
gauge up and down.
