This gives the measurements for sticks to check the gas in oval, square, and 26-27 tanks.


Can anybody direct me to a source of measurements for the round tank?

I found mine in a Dykes. I don't remember which one exactly. I am on a ferry on my way to work right now. I will look it up tonight if no one else finds it first.

Steve, Do it to old fashioned way. Start with a empty round tank and 1x2 stick. Add a gallon to the tank and measure. Add a second gallon and measure. Etc, etc......:-)

Why not just buy a gas tank stick? I think Langs gives them away! Old originals are on ebay all the time.

Someone gave me a tank gauge with all three scales on it that is printed on a paint mixing stick, ( or a large tongue depressor ).
it fits nicely laying flat under the seat and one dip tells you how much gas you have. Great while filling the tank and avoiding a smelly spill over.

I built a little holder for mine in the tank compartment behind the seats in my Speedster.
