Default Gas tank size? very confused.....

Okay so the first few times I put fuel in I though it was odd that the gas tank was so small because I've never gotten more then 12.9 gallons in it from empty to full. I decided to look it up and I see im supposed to have 18- 20 gallon capacity. The fuel tank looks oem and looks larger then 13 gallons
Also if you put fuel o. To fast its as if the tube is crushed and it clicks the pu.p of so I run the pu
Pump on low.

How many miles are you getting per tank? It could be your gas gauge isn't accurate and you're filling up way before you have to.

You just revived a thread from 7 years ago. That member may not even be active here any more. You would probably get better results by starting your own thread. Remember to state your question clearly and give all pertinent info about the situation and your vehicle (year, engine, transmission, transfer case, etc , etc.)

I thought the OP was making a funny. I bet he’s also laughing his ass off at the thought that three people are currently talking about him on a site that he left 7.5 years ago...

He might. He may still be subbed to this thread and is now getting e-mail notifications of the activity every time one of us posts something.

That's why I didn't say anything about it when the thread was revived.
