I have a question relating to fuel tank design whether it be cg 125 or cd70.
Now we all know the design of the fuel tank right....the pic below is an example fuel cork in on the left side and there are two longitudinal lobes with the hump in the middle.
Now when at a fuel station the filler has two choices whether he can approach from the right side and fill the tank lobe on the left or vice versa.
My question is
Wouldn't there be always petrol on the right side ??
Should we always tell the filler to fill the petrol from the right side into the left lobe (which has fuel cork) so that we get proper mileage ???
ok when the tank is filled i realize that both sides would be filled but normally shouldn't be always put petrol on the left side ??
I have seen it myself that even when the reserve gets completely drained there is still some petrol (unknown quantity) in the right side of the tank which is almost impossible to extract unless you detach the tank and flip it a number of times. So basically that petrol is useless in daily riding.
Wouldn't that petrol just lying there uselessly result in the development of rust ???
Do both sides hold equal amount of petrol ??
Note: It may be a stupid question but please bare with me.
