That's what I was thinking I did that with mine, then drained it down as low as I could again into a tank to measure how much I the pipe could actually reach.

All Bernicos have different size tanks depending on what engine it was going to have in the first place. they will range anything from 70 ltrs to 120 ltrs I would think. try sending Nico an email saying it was the old purple Rain F3 boat and he may well have the details however I'm sure it would be alot quicker to drain the tank and then measure it as you put the fuel back in, I use a simple wooden dipstick for mine with markings on it for every 40ltrs but you will be able to mark 20ltr easy maybe even every 10!
