I will let you know tomarrow. Mine is less than fumes. I have never put more than 310 miles on a tank running around town, and right now I am at 333 miles on this tank.

my owners manual says 15.4 gal.

I was hoping it was 14 so my mileage was better.

The car ran out at the gas pump. I actually had to push it the last few feet. I put in 15.8 gallons. So I would say 15.4 is right, the other .4 went in the filler neck.

The car went 336 miles. 16/336=21mpg.

Mine holds 15.4 gallons and when I am reading on empty, I can only put about 12.5 or 13 gallons in. :dunno:

Either the gas pumps don't fill it up all the way or my gas gauge is really inaccurate.

the gauge is set to read empty eventhough you will still have a solid 2 gallons left...its an idiot factor that car makers put in because people like to run the car to E and this keeps people from running out of gas all the time.

When i swapped my fuel pump i ran it down below E and i still had 1.5 gallons left when i dropped the tank and emptied it.

15.4 gals x 25mpg=s 385 miles! That is the mileage I just got going down to Calif for a show...Well that was one tank, the rest were 22mpg as I was having more fun!

alot of times once the nozzle safety shuts it off, you can wait a few seconds to let the gas settle and put in another gallon

they are 15.7 gal tanks but getting your fuel pump to pick up the last bit is not going to happen. Dont forget there is nothing but trash at the bottom of the tank try not to let your car go below a 1/4 tank because it put a strain on the pump and gas mileage suffers.
