    IVA and full fuel tank

    Coming up to IVA and was checking the requirements for weight tests. I note that I need a full fuel tank. I assume it's the weight their interested in so wondering if anyone had turned up with a 35kg bag of cement in the boot and a couple of gallon in the tank to satisfy the load requirement.


    Ideally I don't want a full tank of petrol because it will be off to paint once IVA is passed and storing 12 gallons of fuel is a bit much.


    Any feedback appreciated.

    They will want to see the gauge reading full.

    200 miles of freshly legal hoolagism shouldn't delay your paint that long

    The needle on the gauge must point to "full".

    I guess it's also to check there are no leaks around the top of the tank as well. Not totally unusual for a sender unit to leak around the gasket.

    i don't think you actually need a fuel gauge at all.
    I am pretty sure we have had at least one car test without one.
    but yes, the car does need to be full for the test.
