I understand all of that. What exactly are you thinking I do not understand? This thread is about 110s. Normal 110s have 18 UK gallon tanks which is 21.6 US gallons. Viton said NAS 110s have 16 US gallon tanks which seems strange.

Sorry for the confusion as I was speaking of NAS D90's since someone had brought them into this discussion. I have no idea of the fuel volume of a NAS 110.

The tank on my NAS 110 is about 20 gallons US, is made of steel and has a drain plug on it.

That's right - 20.4 per the NAS 110 specs. I think the OP does have some issue with his fuel system since he hasn't been able to get anything close to that into his when running it empty...definitely seems like a pick-up issue or something similar...or a smaller tank installed later...

You will be able to gauge by the weight of the tank how much fuel is left inside, once you remove the sender and then check the pickup you'll be able to gauge what is happening to understand why you're only using part of the tank volume.
Then you'll be able to fix it proper like.
OK then...
