SWB UBS55 Fuel Tank Size?

Postby NZrocky » Sat Oct 15, 2016 5:56 am

Hi guys, just picked up one of these beasts with the intercooled 4JB1-T and pretty impressed with it so far. But as with a lot of older vehicles fuel gauge isn't the best so just wondering how much the tank actually holds because I couldn't find anything on google...

If the guage is working correctly 1/3 is really 1/2 and you have about 200km road travel left when it gets to the white zone on the dial. Dont rely on the warning light though. The light sender can fail and the wire wound sender can also fail. When I bought my ubs55 it had a bad sender and at 250km from full it dropped from near full to empty so I never went further than 450km on it till fixed. If yours is a 4jb1 then 700km plus is easily acheived 800+ on good roads or 1000 if you drive like a granny
