Re: Fuel Tank Capacity???

4.8g capacity
No reserve switch, just a warning light.
light flashing: 1.1g left
light solid: 0.7g left

Farthest I've ever gone on a tank is 160 miles. (Didn't run out) I usually refuel at the first warning light, around 110-120 miles.

Does this info apply for the '97 600 as well?

Re: Fuel Tank Capacity???

Depends on your gearing. If it's stock gearing you are looking at about 130-140 miles.
