I have just weighed my 1989 1.9 GTI. Fully stripped out less the dashboard with a Cobra Imola2 seat and 4 point harness. The car still has all the glass including the (dealer option) glass sun roof and was weighed with 1/4 tank of petrol.

The car weighs exactly 800KG on a weigh bridge ( +/- 10KG ).

Does anyone know how much fuel weighs per Gallon?

Petrol 0.74g/ml.
Or about 3/4 of a kilo for every litre.

309GTi
mi16 engine
quaife LSD
roll cage
stripped interior
2 opm seats
standard pannels and glass

900kg with 1/2 tank fuel at a local dump weight bridge.

Seems very heavy compared to the 205s. What's standard for a 309?

Standard 205TD Tad - 8KG

:-(

Oh well keeping the engine cool is more important than keeping it light. I should manage to brake even on the weight though as most of the stuff i've removed to change the rad won't be going back.

That's actually very good when you consider a 309 GTI16 is 978kg.

Apparently 206 GTI 180 calipers will fit so caliper clearence isn't an issue.
They are 15x6J ET18 and I paid 20 for all 4, but citroen dealers should be able to supply them for 30 ish* per wheel. They are actually made from an alloy and not steel, hence their low weight.

Most of this thread is about these wheels:
