i thought mine was 15-gallons as well, however this morning the pump said it dumped 15.878 gallons in the tank. i'm trying to figure out if the gas station is screwing me over or if the tank is larger then i originally thought.

any links to sources would help.


thanks again for the help.

mine has also always taken about 12 gallons, recently it got up to 17 gallons and I stopped it myself fearing it would overflow, what's up?

I am waiting for some kid to come in here and say that "I always try to keep my truck around 1/4 of a tank, because it makes my truck so much faster because of less weight and my friends always ask why my truck is so fast." :p

Well I have put 18 gal in my truck before so unless I have a super long filler tube I must have the 19 gal version. Nice because I don't have to fill up as much but when I do it hurts the ol pocketbook.

This topic has been beat to death in this forum. There are two different tanks available for the truck. One is slightly over 16 gallons. The other is 19 gallons. Both measurements do not include the fuel filler neck.
i did a search under several tank related keywords and didn't come up with anything specific. do you happen to have a link to a site that explains which trucks came with which tank?

I don't think we were ever able to determine a rhyme or reason to it. Some trucks got the little one, some got the big one. Guys with the same engines, same trannys, same years, same cab configuration reported different sized tanks. I'm pretty sure we did determine that all Blazers had the 19 gallon tank, though.

I always keep my tank full for the weight, it makes the truck sit lower. I also only date fat chicks for the same reason.

My '96 Ext. Cab 2.2L 5-spd is a 16 gallon I believe. Strangely enough I believe in my owners manual it claims it's only a 13 gallon tank...I thought that was odd when I put almost 15 gallons in one day. $26 to fill it up half way tonight at $2.86 a gallon...*sigh*...glad I get 24 mpg driving like an idiot.
