I am getting ready to modify my trailer so if needed I can haul my M3W.
I was not sure on the actual weight so I took it to a truck scale and had it weighted.
With the fuel gauge reading 50% and no one in the car here is what the truck scale read.

total weight 1300lbs
with just the front wheels resting on the scale 800lbs

I do have a much larger battery and lots of sound insulation installed.

There is one thing I remember from my M3W-days: never trust the fuel gauge!😹

Did you happen to weigh the car with a driver in it to see the weight distribution on the front?

At the risk of tempting fate, my new M3W seems to have an accurate fuel gauge happy3

It stays on 100% for about 50 miles then seems to go down in a fairly linear fashion to 0% at which point the tank takes 30 litres. This leaves about 10 litres reserve.

Of course it might change but for now I'm pretty pleased smile

Forensic examination needed - take it to bits to see why it is working! πŸ˜‚
