Whats the tank capacity? I thought I read on another thread that the maximum octane level available in India is 94. Is that true?

Speed 97 but at select pumps only.
Reliance also has something similar.
Also, one can also use Octane boosters to increase the O levels slightly.

I saw the Pune car a couple of weeks back when I was there. I was riding and it was too cold for me to take my gloves off and take a pic and it was around 10 pm anyway. A white haired guy was driving it.

We have some LC Prados running around with custom 180 liter tanks. Imagine the time spent for a full tank (+ the bill)!.
