When is the weight distribution at 50/50?

Just a curiosity I've been having... we all know that our cars have nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution... but with how much gas in the tank? Empty / Full / half?

I'd like to know too, but I'm guessing it's measured without gas. Maybe when it's full of gas it goes to 50/50, since it has a marginal front bias unladen (330i is 50.6/49.4)?

IIRC, it's 50.6/49.4 front/rear with a 65kg driver and half tank of gas.

You're supposed to ask "African or European?". Which is actually applicable to the E90!




OK, who doesn't get that?

This is all relevant to where the CG is. Is the CG center of the drivers seat, perpendicular to the drive axle?
Where is it? back of drivers seat? where? where?
