    Does anyone have any idea how much the diesel tank holds on the 2001 Pilote P690 based on a Peugeot Boxer 2.8 HDI?
    The standard Boxer van holds 90 litres, I think :) But I wondered if they change the tanks for conversions.
    My gauge is all over the place so I fill up every 250 miles just to be safe.
    I am getting between 30 and 36 MPG and wondered if I could leave it longer between refills.
    Any help appreciated.

    I would be very surprised if the fuel tank capacity was anything other than standard, to be honest

    Cheers mate. That's what I thought but I've seen comments before about tank sizes on conversions altering the capacity.
    I carry a spare gallon just in case.
    If it is 90 litre it would give me 600 miles max between refils. That would be much better....

    Some do have larger tanks. Ours, Globecar, pvc, has a 120 litre tank.

    Best bet is to fix gauge, just going out with multi meter and a cold beer.
    Then I can run it to nearly empty and see how many litres it takes to refill.
    Thanks for you help.
