I do not know about the Santorin specifically but on my SM, #007 an early hull, my fuel tanks do not hold 600 liters as per the 2000’s but only 565.
As an aside, the “stick" is accurately graduated and I can estimate the refill to +- 5 liters on each fill up.
The Volvo is a bit less thirsty than Yanmar… this may be the reason for less fuel quantity in the early SM’s.
Good luck but if you want a definitive answer, Olivier would be a good source….

Exactly! So once I’ve used 350 litres do I have 10 litres left or 50? It’s the original stick too. So I was just asking other Santorin owners whether they register a 400 reading when the tank is full?

Isn't the point to see how empty the tank is? Dipstick works great & a new one can be made.

My Santorin does not have that line fitted. I will check on the lever on the pump. It sounds like a good idea to fit one and put a dash of red paint on it too.
On another topic - do you still have the fuel dipstick? I can only fill my fuel tank up to the 360 litre mark. I can see the diesel in the neck of the filler pipe so I know it must be full. I just wonder if Henri designed it to have a 40 litre reserve.....
Best wishes. Just out of the Caledonian canal en route to the Baltic. Lots of ran here.
