Each tank hold about 17gal. For the leak, first a thorough visual inspection. If no leak is found remove the plastic shield. And give it one more good lookin over. If STILL no leak is found, you can purchase a UV dye additive that will highlight the point of puncture under a UV light.

How many gallon gas do the gas tank hold?


Fill it with the gas can and then go to a gas station. Your gas can can't be much bigger than 5 gallons, there's very few that are larger because they get heavy. Your gas tank is vastly more than 5 gallons, probably 15 or more in an Envoy.

I have a 1986 GMC S15 that will start and run, but won't stay running?


My first guess would be a very bad vacuum leak, second guess would be fuel starvation. Check hoses for cracking ,breakage, check fuel filters from tank to engine. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Finding fuel leak options with very little fuel in tank, leaks with addition of $5 worth of fuel?


Surely you can see the fuel on the outside of the
fuel tank or a rusted fuel tube under it

You should be able to find that issue in 10 minutes
IF you get under it

That is only 2 gallons added at a time

Wouldn't you think the fuel tank is the issue,if
it leaks without the motor running

Now you also know we can not guess from here
