Other
Fuel Capacity: 43ga. total, 40 usable
Oil Capacity (Total): 7 qts (5 qts minimum)
Propeller: Fixed Pitch, 75 inch diameter
Engine: Lycoming, 160hp, O-320-D2J

Weights
Gross Weight: 2400 lbs.
Empty Weight: 1435.3 lbs
Useful Load: 964.7 lbs (2400 – 1435.3 = 964.7)
Baggage: 120 lbs.
Payload with full fuel: 724.7 ( 964.7 – 240 = 724.7)

As a note numerous pilots mistake how to get the payload with full fuel. Pilots incorrectly use FUEL CAPACITY (43 gal) instead of USABLE FUEL (40 gal) for C-172N. So the 1435.3lbs includes those 3 gallons of fuel.The “Basic Empty Weight” is airplane + UNUSABLE FUEL + engine oil + full operating fluids (brake fluid).
