Trident challenger

Hi there,

I recently purchased a Trident Challenger 35. My question, how do I measure the fuel quantity?

Please advise.

Re: Trident challenger

In what way do you mean?

Like tank volume?

Or remaining fuel?

Or fuel consumption?

Re: Trident challenger

We started with empty tanks. Get a stick you can put into the top port, long enough to reach the bottom. Add a jerrycan of fuel, mark the stick at the fuel depth. I used a pencil and a knife to make a notch. Repeat until the tank is full.

I can always tell how much is left in the tank and how many jerrycans to fill it.

Low tech, foolproof.
