My owners manual states 16.4 us gallons, which includes a 2 gallon reserve.

Specs given on Edmunds list tank at 17.2 U.S. gallons

I went to the pump today and pumped in 17 gallons, guage was still reading about 1/8th of a tank. No reason to believe it is inaccurate. I will go with the 17.2. Thanks guys.

Punch in your vin and find out for sure.

Mine lists code 915 with 70L tank which +10L reserve = 80L.

fuel tank, 70 liter (с 01.05.1988), which according to my conversion = 70.00

18.49/ no mention of a reserve however, but that looks to be about accurate. Thanks!!!
