I just filled my Interstate tank from nearly empty to full. 6 gallons at Costco, USA. Can that be right? I've always thought 5gal, (US), was the bigger of the Interstate tanks. What sizes did they make?
L.A.B. said:The 750/850 Commando Riders Manuals list the Interstate tank size as "5.84 Imp. (7.3 US) gallons, 26.57 litres"
The 850 MkIII Riders Manual lists the Interstate tank as "5.25 Imp (6.3 US) gallons, 23.87 litres" as the later Interstate tanks were slightly slimmer I believe?

Right out of the technical data page in the manual.
5 -1/2 Imp. gallons is equivalent to 6 - 7/8 US gallons.
