My "29 gallon" tank holds about 34 gallons. I routinely put 30-31 in when I fill up.

And I can get about 41 gallons in my 38 gallon tank also. Hence the "official" designation...

I've put 32.5 GAL in my short box tank a few times. I doubt there was room for another half gallon since my fuel pressure was fluctuating wildly and even dropping to zero as I coasted in the station.

Ive put 31 into my 29 gal. I think the specs are fudged a wee bit for the people who really love the push the diesel gauge.

You also have to consider the amount fuel in the filler neck. I know some vehicles that you can get almost 2 gal. in the neck!

not sure what mine holds but I did find out last week that I have a low fuel warning light! when I seen that I was hunting fuel right now, some day I need to throw a can of fuel in the truck and see how far I can go with the light on.

That happened to me one time also. Was quite nerve racking...
I can't believe I let it get that low. Never again (famous last words...).
