F150 gas tank size

I have a 1992 F150 Standard Cab Shortbox 4x4 pickup with the 302. My gas gage does not work (seems like a common ford problem) however, my gas tank seems to be tiny. I figure its somewhere around 14 gallons. Does anyone know or can anyone direct me to where I could find this information? Thanks a bunch guys.

ken

ps. This is my first post on the forum and I am very excited to have found a source of information like this.

F150 gas tank size

My owner's manual says one tank is 19 gallons and the other is 17. If I fill up at the 1/8th mark, both tanks turn off the pump around 15 gallons.

Not too sure about running 'till empty, though. The sediment could be drawn into the pumps and filter...

The pumps ALWAYS pull from the bottom of the tank, so the sediment would get sucked up all the time. But there's a big filter on the bottom of the pump to stop that. Take a look.
