Im trying to get the vehicle weights for the 8th gen once and for all as they are all over the place depending on where you go and what you read.

1301kg dry weight fn2
1267kg honda
1345kg http://asia.vtec.net/Reviews/eCTR/index.html

Supposedly its not even clearly defined.
Some manufacturers include passengers, some include fuel, some dont.

Please remove everything from car.
Please fill up tank.
Please go to a weighbridge (ask nicely at council dump) and get your car weighed without occupants.
Please report back here listing exact model type, engine size and fuel amount.

I'll start the ball rolling as I went down the weighbridge today.
Please append your info and leave comments for another thread so things dont get messy looking for the info.
Thanks lots :D

evidently diesel weighs about 0.88kg / liter (about 44kg+ / tank)
petrol weighs about 0.74kg / liter (about 37kg+ / tank)

Type S GT 2.2 (used 50 miles of a full tank)
1426kg
Estimated 1380kg kerb weight

Is that with or without fuel though ???
Interesting one the less.

I know the FN2 has 1338kg on the log book.
I often see dry weight of 1300kg.
But Im looking for hard evidence of the vehicle that specifies with without fuel passengers and such

I weighed mine at my companies weigh bridge, again designed for trucks, but apparently accurate to 5-10kgs, so that I could set up Dashcommand.

The car is a 1.8 EX-GT, as empty and approx 90% of fuel. It came out at 1317kg

I use 160kg for addittional weight to cover me, the missus and the sprog :)

It is normal to state kerb weight, so all fluids full and no passengers or cargo. Each model within FK2, FN2 etc. has a different mass.

90% fuel.
...so 1317 - (0.9* 50 * 0.74) = 1284 kg roughly

1,196−1,317 kg wiki

Finally got 'round to jumping on my local weighbridge Mick.

For the record, 2/3 tank of diesel, rear seats removed & single exit s/s exhaust;

1,380 kgs ! :(

As previously stated though only accurate to +/- 20 kgs, so 1,360 - 1,400 kgs !

Bridge was accurate to a point 'cos when I jumped back in the car reading leapt to 1,460, and I weight bang on 80 kgs !

Not sure any of this really helps...

We need some accurate readings...:popcorn2:
