    I have just checked the details on my registration documents that I got back from DVLA after uprating from 3500 Kg to 3850 Kg and yes the revenue weight is 3850 Kg gross

    Further down the document is Mass in Service at 3130 does anyone know what this is please ?

    Google says this

    Mass in service is defined under The European Directive 95/48/EC which includes 90% fuel and 75kg for driver and tools.

    in other words .. kerb weight

    I posted about this a few weeks ago - same query. No real definitive answer. :cry: Uprated from 3500 to 3650. New V5C arrived. Revenue weight now 3650 gross. Max. permissible mass (excl. m/c) (F.1) 3500. Mass in service (G) 3500. Confused .com :Confused:

    Sorry, though I answered.

    'Mass in service' same as 'Mass in running order'.. ie in old money .. kerb weight

    It's all here if you drill down into it

    Sorry, ScotJimland. Found it after I posted :Doh: One more query though. How can the "Mass in Service" or kerb weight be the same as my old max plated weight, i.e. 3500? They couldn't have been the same before as would have had no payload. :Confused:

    Just as well I don't use tools :Eeek:

    Bet there aren't many of us under 75kg, if my sums are right that is not even 12 stone

    My dog nearly weighs that
