You are watching: 2008 nissan altima gas tank size

I"m confused.Reading the car specs, which are generic, I see that the gas tank is 20 gallons.I have only had the car long enough to hit the gas station twice, both times the warning light fires and I go maybe another fifteen miles, and both times it takes less than 16 gallons to fill.That would mean the reserve light fires with four gallons in the tank, and I find that doubtful. Particularly since my "remaining miles" indicator shows maybe 65 miles remaining, that tells me it should be more like 2.5 or 3 gallons on reserve. So why am I not filling to 17+ gallons?Did they actually equip some cars with an 18 gallon tank?

The warning calculator is not that accurate, you will have 3gal+ left in the tank when it goes off most likely.
