The US owners manual defines
The curb weight of a vehicle is defined as the total weight of the vehicle with all fluids, including vehicle fuel, at full capacity conditions, and with no occupants or cargo loaded into the vehicle. The front and rear curb weight values are determined by weighing your vehicle on a commercial scale before any occupants or cargo are added."
Can anyone with an Australian vehicle confirm what the owner's manual says.
The point I am trying to make is it is not clear if the tare/kerb weight includes a full fuel tank. With a 93 litre fuel tank, that could be around 80kg difference.
With a heavy van (350kg tow ball force), a few accessories (tow bar, bull bar, ORAII etc), some luggage and passengers, that 80 kg could be the difference between complying with the GVM or not.
This is an issue with my current vehicle where the kerb weight didn't include fuel. With a full fuel tank (150 l or around 130kg), 250kg ball weight, steel bull bar and a few other items, there is barely enough capacity to include any passengers other than the driver. I didn't realise how close it was until I weighed the vehicle with the van.
