Kk42 fuel tank sight glass graduations

I have long suspected mine are off. Have not taken the chance to correct when filling due to time constraints at fuel dock etc. If you have a 42 with confirmed sight glass measurements, I would like to know what they are. Mine has the fiberglass tanks, but assume the steel tanks are close enough.

Please include references for the measurements, ie: from tank top or bottom vs. sight glass top r bottom, and perhaps sight glass heights vs. tank heights.

This has become an issue as I originally planned on taking fuel on in Cartagena and now will most likely not. I have approximately a 140ish hr run to P.R. and am thinking about fuel.

Thanks

My boat is different than yours, so there is no point in giving you my tank dimensions. But you should be able to calculate the capacity of your tanks by measuring their size. One cubic foot equals 7.47 US gallons.

Rossland,

Unfortunately the tank has alot of curvature and odd shape. So any calculations would still be a guess.
