Owners manual says 19 gallons but I can't fill it any higher then 16 gallons. It's probably the fuel sender unit that has gone out or it has gotten hung up. The fuel sender unit come with a fuel pump in an assembly and are 300 dollars.

my 98 has a 19 gal tank and it will hold every bit of too. almost found out the hard way once when it sputtered into a gas station, 18.9 gal later it was filled to the very top of the neck.

good to know. probably not the best on your fuel pump. infact i know its not good on your fuel pump. lol but just incase i guess.

i just filled up and it took 16.7 but i kept filling after it 'clicked' or stopped pumping.



so im a 16 gallon tank too.

i figured out that each line on the fuel level is a gallon. next time the needle is at like a the 3rd line see how many gallons u put in and see how many lines it goes up.

an my guage stopped working too. once i get less than a half tank it doesnt work, it says i have 3/4 of a tank
