Hi

This is simply because the stated capacity is for the tank and the tank alone, but when we fill our cars up we tend to fill up inside the filler neck as well as the tank, which is where the extra capacity comes from.

1988 ford xlt lariat 4x4 need to see how to route my fuel lines ,dual tanks


The original gas tank on a 1998 F-250 Lariat has a capacity of 30 gallons. Because there is no mention of dual fuel tank capacity available, the 2nd fuel tank was likely added after purchase. You would need to know the capacity of the fuel tank when it was installed. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You will need to replace the fuel level sensor, this involves the removal of the fuel tank to access the sending unit.

It depends, all cars are different, when the light comes on, fill the tank, check the owners manual for fuel tank capacity, subtract the fuel you just put in from the tank capacity

i would guess 60 liters...

but the best way to know it is by really driving it with almost empty tank then make a full tank at the gas station and you would know the tank capacity...
