    So the kerb weight is the total weight of a car with standard equipment, oil, lubricants, coolant, a full tank of fuel and not loaded with either passengers or luggage. Your car's kerb weight from manufacture is 1485 kg and the 75%, 85%, etc is the car to loaded trailer/carvan weight ratio. For example, you can pull 85% of your car's kw ratio 1262 kg on a 12 dregree incline but you have also got to consider the towing ball weight in your calculation...most of them are around 75 kg. You will also need to note the braked and unbraked figures.
