From memory the bt1 was just optioned with the 80l regardless of 6cyl or 8cyl.
Only bigger tanks were custom made as far as I was aware.

Vn V8s all came with a 80l drop tank ( no VN had a 90 l tank ex factory)
and
(not sure why) VR V8s had an 84l tank

vs commodore
The early VN handbook says the long range tank is 85 litres,the standard tank is 63 litres and the wagon tank holds 68 litres..Ive noticed that in the later VN handbook the long range tank capacity was lowered to 80 litres from 85 for some reason..

Early VN was an 85lt, later VN was 80lt. VR V8 was 80lt as well, not 84lt.
