Continentel O300 by Stjepan Nikolic
Well, my C172A definitely can take 4 people (2 adults 155kg + 2 children 90kg), plus full 140 lit tanks and there is 50kg spare to carry. Unfortunately this is not possible in C172N with 180 lit tanks unless departing with less fuel.

Pilot of Fly-By-Wire Helicopter Overruled by Computer. Six Dead by Larry Dighera
