The manual states that the fuel tank holds "approximately 77L/20.3 US gallons, including a reserve of approximately 12.5L/3.3 US gallons"
Last night I added over 21 gallons to the tank, leaving me to believe that perhaps something got lost in translation and the 3.3 reserve gallons is not "included", but should be added to the normal capacity of 20.3 gallons for a total of 23.6 gallons. Does anyone know the true volume?

The listing I have says 90liter total with 12.5liter in reserve. That would be 23.8 gal.
