Default How big is our gas tank?

I'm going on 380 miles on the initial tank of gas that the dealer filled it with for me.

I'm down to under 1/4 tank, though, so I'll probably fill it up today and start officially figuring out my mpg. But just wondered, how big is the gas tank on the 6?

it's technincally 18 gallons, but i think we can only utilize around 16.7 (the remaining 1.3 is left for the reserve at the bottom of the tank to collect particles, and dirt matter). I found the light usually goes on at about the 14.2 gallon used mark.

Or if you want to talk metric, it's 68 litres (although I've never put more than 54 litres in at any fill up).

OK since this topic has been answered, time to hijack.

Is it just me or are prices going up again? They've gone up at least like 8 cents in the past week or two.

Well... When my light comes on I usually fill it up within about 5-10 miles. But it stops at about 13.5-13.8 gallons to put back in. It's happened all the time and is just really weird to me. Anyways.. thought I would throw that in :)
