Series 3 Rx7 - petrol tank capacity

#1 Post by 78mg » Sun Dec 10, 2017 9:03 am

Hi

I just want to know what the capacity of the series 3 RX7 fuel tank is in litres.

I’ve tried searching in the forum and have only found discussions of the fact that it is bigger than series 2.

Many thanks in advance.

I don't actually know the answer to this, so I had a look at my parts catalogues and there are different part numbers listed for the different types of tanks and gauges.

The series 3 oz-delivered sender should be part number FA01-60-960A and it is appears to be widely available online (and therefore probably also cheaper through your local Mazda dealer without having to pay for freight). It is listed for around US$80. Based on this you might be able to get it for around $100 locally. US sites list the part for for a 81-83 model, but series 2 in the US got the 63L tank we got in series 3. I have checked the Japanese parts catalogue I have and it's the right part number for 84-85 JDM models too, so it should be right. 84-85 US models had a different gauge cluster to us, so different level sender (even though the fuel tank is the same capacity).

I wouldn't assume series 2 for oz-delivered is the same. The series 1 sender (for 55L tank) has a different part number, but series 1 gauge clusters were also different.

S3 tank has a screw in pickup plate and the S2 has just a metal tube soldered into the tank.
S3 tank is taller so in theory the sender range would be different.
