How big is my gas tank on my 1989 dodge 150 full size truck

My gas gage is real innacurate on my 1989 dodge ram 150 truck (V8 5.9 liter) and I want to know how big the gas tank is so I can have an idea how far I can safely drive my truck.

Dodge installed two different sizes in that year truck. It is either a 26 U.S. gal (22 imp gal; 98 L), or a 35 U.S. gal (29 imp gal; 130 L). The exact size could be determined by running the tank as close to dry as possible, (without running out and getting stuck) refilling at a gas station and looking at how many gallons you put in.
Hope this helps.

Gas tank size , gas gage does not work , how many miles to the gallon the grand caravan get?


The gas tank capacity is 20 US gallons, but the tank will really only hold about 19.5 gallons. As far as mileage goes that really depends on your driving habits and the load it carries, just you? more? I would think that your average miles to the gallon would be in the range of 14-16 town and highway.
Here is the EPA ratings, which never match the real world gas mileage.

1989 dodge ram 150 4/w drive pickup has no oil pressure showing on the gage, driving or sitting still.


You need to have a oil pressure guage hooked up to see if you have a bad guage, sending unit to the guage, or if your oil pressure is actually low. Any garage should be able to do this, if you can't get one.

Gas gage plays up down


This problem is all to common on all dodge trucks in the 90's, the fuel guage sending unit in the gas tank needs to be replaced. They won't sell just the sender, you have to buy the fuel pump module for $300.00
