Built in fuel tank - Osprey Sparrowhawk

Hi guys

I have a 1991 vintage Osprey Sparrowhawk with inbuilt tank.

Anyone have any ideas what the capacity might be? (I've never actually drained it fully or 'brimmed' it)

Jon can we have a picture looking down though the console ? there was a similar thread a month ago asking about a Viper fuel tank too.

Viper -No Fuel Guage - How much is left!!!!

Sparrowhawk tank

I think it's the 20 gallon job.

By my reckoning it was half full (that's what the gauge suggested) and we got 40 litres in at the petrol pump last night until it dribbled out of the breather, so the estimate of around 85l is good enough for me. Hope it lasts me the weekend, although I'll take a 20l jerrycan as spare.

I have a 92 (ish) Osprey Eagle and wondered the same thing recently. Filled mine up from empty the other day and it was 80l......
