i convert it to cm's so its 35 x 35 x 50 = 61250 cubic cm's

them divide by 1000 to give litres = 61.25 L

1 litre = a cube of 10cm x 10cm x 10cm = 1000cm³

Your tank is 350mm x 350mm x 500mm = 61,250,000mm³

Divide by 1000 to convert mm³ to cm³ = 61,250cm³

Divide by 1000 to obtain the number of litres = 61.25l as previously indicated

BUT assuming your measurements are external and the tank material is 2mm thick, the tank will actually hold nearly a litre less.

You would also have to deduct the volume of any fitted fuel gauge sender unit
