Aramis is correct. The Vl is supposed to be a volume of 10 liters. The vehicle TAs have that as 5 liters. In both 1 vls is 1 kg.

volume by multiplying the vls by 5 to get the size in liters,
I do not remember why I changed that. I would have to go back through my notes to figure out why. I have a vague memory of being unable to reconcile the size as generated by the design system vs the size of real world vehicles I was using as examples.
