Default Tech for fuel tank size?

What is the method most track use to tech for fuel tank size.

The roar rule book gives a couple examples but seems time consuming.

Is their a fast, accurate and efficient way to do this at a large event?

Thanks

Jamie

I have seen it be done at a off-road event. They just basically take your car, disconnect the fuel line from the pipe and engine. Then they plug the pipe line to a small 12V pump, and the other end to a test tube.

And the best way is to set the pump on the backpressure line and pump the tank full with air, in that way no fuel will be left inside the pump

Roelof do you have a picture of this setup anywhere?

Could you draw a simple diagram?

Thanks

Also that way you don't really need a pump, because you can also blow out all fuel if you really want to....
