300TD runs out of fuel too soon

My 300TD hybrid runs out of fuel when there is only room for 13 gallons. The owner's manual says the tank holds 18+ gallons. I checked to make sure the feed and return lines are correct and it looks like they are. i.e. the feed line comes out of the lower fitting on the tank. Despite the extensive modifications to this vehicle the fuel system is stock. Any ideas? Could it be a simple fuel filter issue? I haven't ever changed them.
