    Nice and easy one this. How big is the fuel tank on a 1992 1.8 normally
    aspirated diesel pug 205?

    My manual ('Lindsay Porter's Colour manuals') gives only one figure so
    presumably it's the same for all 205 models - 50 litres.

    The handbook reports 50l as well. Indeed, the truth is 44l "normal" tank,
    and 6 more ("reserve", when the light comes & stays on - sometimes it tends
    to blink on mine with 12l remaining).

    Excellent, thanks to you both. I should get 500 miles range then easily.

    That's what I tend to reach when I drive more 6 miles at a time. When I was
    on 70 miles trips (Home to school) I used to get around 5l/100 (a bit under
    60MPH), this giving a theorical 880km (545 miles) range before the orange
    light came. Oh, I was refueling a bit before, for 'safety' reasons (I would
    have hated being out of fuel a Sunday night !).
