Either there are two versions of the Cal
35, or Sailboat data is wrong, based on the first link I found (last link at bottom of my post). Two versions are not impossible, there are other Cals of the same length that Lapworth originally designed, then years later, particularly after Jenson marine
closed and other companies took over the Cal
line, another architect designed a completely different boat with that same length.
After more research
, here is the Cal 35 Cruise
from 1973. Very different, looks more like the Cal 2-46 motorsailor.

Compare to this fin keel
boat of the same name minus the cruise
part, listed as having a 33 gallon tank.

Here is what looks like a brochure from Bangor Punta that says the 1973 Cal 35 cruise has a 170 gallon tank.
CAL 35 Yacht: The Extra 5 Grand Isn't For Extras
546 feet of sail. A full run keel
. Sleek. Fast yet forgiving. And a spade rudder
and wheel steering
to make life a little easier. 170 gallon tanks
and a full-power Perkins
diesel with an 800 mile cruising range and a shoal draft
that eases her into shallow inlets.
